CALGARY, May 8, 2018 /PRNewswire/ – WestJet Airlines Ltd. (TSX: WJA) (WestJet) announced today the voting results from its annual meeting of shareholders held Tuesday May 8, 2018 in Calgary, Alberta. The total number of shares represented by shareholders present in person and by proxy at the meeting was 68.7 million, representing 60.3 per cent of WestJet’s issued and outstanding Common Voting Shares and Variable Voting Shares.

Given that the total number of votes cast by or on behalf of holders of WestJet’s Variable Voting Shares at the meeting of 30.5 million exceeded 25 per cent of the total number of votes cast at the meeting, the results below reflect the fact that the vote attached to each Variable Voting Share has been automatically decreased to equal the maximum vote permitted per Variable Voting Share under WestJet’s amended and restated articles of incorporation, which, in these circumstances was 0.42 of a vote per Variable Voting Share.

Holders of the requisite number of shares voted in favour of all items of business, including election of each of the twelve director nominees as follows:
