WestJet is offering EAC conference attendees 10 percent off regular fares into and out of Halifax, for travel up to 3 days before and 3 days after the conference (flights between June 4 and 12).
If you’re booking a WestJet flight to the conference, use convention code CC7821 for 10 percent off their best available fare at the time of the booking (excluding seat sales and web fares).
To book flights using this convention discount code, phone the WestJet Groups Department at 1-888-493-7853. You can’t book online for the convention code discount.
[Note: EAC’s conference committee recommends searching online before booking a WestJet flight at 10 percent off. You might find lower rates through airline ticket discounters. Or waiting for a WestJet seat sale might save you more, since the conference discount doesn’t apply to seat sales.]
