WestJet eyes smaller planes

http://www.theglobeandmail.com/servl...Story/Business

After faithfully ordering workhorse Boeing 737s over the past 13 years, WestJet Airlines Ltd. WJA-T is studying the merits of adding smaller planes, envisaging a bold departure from its single-fleet strategy.

The Calgary-based carrier, founded in 1996 with just three Boeing 737s, is pondering using smaller aircraft for regional routes as it develops contingency plans in case Air Canada and its Jazz affiliate scale back service.
