Porter Airlines is matching WestJet Rewards’ elite status match offer with one of their own. Porter Airlines which has expanded nationwide over the past few months is now offering an elite status and fast track to elite status for WestJet Rewards elite members. The airline will match status as follows:
The status match is valid for 120 days and then if you reach the required reduced qualifying spend (reduced by 75%!) by flying with Porter you can retain that status right through to the end of 2024. The required spend is as follows:
- VIPorter Venture ‐ earn $750 in Qualifying Spend (Regular requirement is $3,000)
- VIPorter Ascent ‐ earn $1500 in Qualifying Spend (Regular requirement is $6,000)
- VIPorter First ‐ earn $2500 in Qualifying Spend (Regular requirement is $10,000)
To take part in the status match you need to be VIPorter member (or join the program now if you are not) and then email them at firstname.lastname@example.org with your VIPorter # and a screenshot showing your WestJet Reward elite status tier and expiry date. All applications must be received by VIPorter by May 31, 2023 and it may take up to 3 weeks for them to process your request.
They do state that special consideration may be given to applicants whose WestJet Rewards status expired on December 31, 2022 and provide sufficient proof. (I assume that proof is that you are or will be flying more).
And that’s all there is to it!
