WestJet is launching a travel rewards credit card this fall, in cooperation with RBC Royal Bank and MasterCard. The new co-branded card will allow guests to earn WestJet rewards.

The new WestJet credit card, to be issued by RBC with MasterCard, will complement RBC’s other travel rewards cards. The bank expects the card to appeal to North American and Caribbean travellers who want to be rewarded by their preferred airline.


WestJet’s new rewards credit card will be the first MasterCard product offered by RBC in Canada. The launch is also expected to make RBC the first Canadian bank to begin offering both MasterCard and other credit card brands.
