March 21 Update: You can now redeem WestJet companion vouchers online, U.S./U.K. electronics travel ban & more!

News, Tips & Tricks

WestJet quietly launched the ability to redeem the companion vouchers online that come from the WestJet RBC MasterCard. Great news for those of you who didn’t like calling in to book flights using the voucher!

It’s been all over the news since last night, The U.S. travel ban on electronics in the cabin (save
for cell phones and medical devices). This means items like tablets,
laptops, etc. will have to be placed in your checked luggage. The ban is
only for flights originating on select airlines from 10 airports in the
Middle East and Africa. Of course this will affect you if you are
travelling on these flights via the U.S. but there is one Canadian
flight affected. Royal Jordanian’s flight to Montreal will be included
since that fligth continues on to Detroit. There are reports now of ban to be put in place by the U.K. as well. No word yet if Canada will also put in a place a ban as many of the airlines affected do fly to Canada as well. Find our more from the DHS website
