WestJet Blue Tag Thursdays
Every Thursday the WestJet Blue Tag Thursdays event is an excellent opportunity to save on airfare to select destinations. The sales event is a web only sale and is for a limited time, usually just three hours. On some occasions, WestJet has run the BlueTag seat sale for 24 hours. This web event is often the best day of the week to book your flight if you are looking for cheap airline tickets.
An important point to note is that WestJet do not announce ahead of time what destinations will be on sale. Some weeks, the focus for the airline is flights from Canada to the USA and other weeks they feature flights within Canada. Vancouver, BC is clearly an important airport within Canada for WestJet and there are usually several flights from Vancouver International Airport (YVR) on sale.
