WestJet announces Flyre Festival featuring immersive music, emotional support pigs

Press Release

WestJet today announced that Canada’s favourite airline may launch Flyre Festival, the world’s first premium in-flight music festival, on April 1, 2020. Many of the airline’s promised festival activities can be seen in a promotional video released today.

“Since the dawn of flying, humans have yearned for an immersive music festival at 35,000 feet,” said Richard Bartrem, WestJet vice president marketing communications. “WestJet is giving the people what they want, and the experience will be impossible to put into words. If we could put it into words, those words would be, “world’s first premium in-flight music festival.”

Attendance at the Flyre Festival won’t require a private plane, because it is on one. The price of boarding the plane, emotional support pigs and immersive music will be included in every ticket package.

WestJet invites those who would like to join in on the excitement to upload the teal square to their social channels with the following caption, “Flyre Festival is cleared for takeoff.”  You can download and share the teal tile issued with the news release.
