The Q400 is a twin-engined turboprop aircraft manufactured by the Canadian company Bombardier. The "Q" in the name stands for "quiet", because the noise and vibration suppression system (NVS) neutralises a large proportion interior and exterior noise, making the aircraft one of the quietest in its class. This aircraft type is also environmentally friendly because of its fuel economy and much lower CO2 emissions than comparable jets. WestJet added the Q400 to its fleet in June 2013.
The Premium section is located in the first three rows of the aircraft. Passengers seated in Premium seats will get advance boarding, first access to overhead bins, and complimentary food and beverages (selections vary). In addition, the Premium fare offers passengers the ability to change or cancel flights for no fee.
The WestJet Q400 is a single class aircraft that operates on short-haul flights. This version is configured in a 2-2 format and is flying with 78 seats of Economy Class.
