Travellers take flight despite WestJet threats
Airline passengers in Saskatoon have positive outlook despite threats
Travellers going to and from Saskatoon's airport are taking a positive outlook despite four threats made against WestJet flights in the past five days.
According to Loran, travellers think the airline is handling the situation well. She believes that people won't avoid using WestJet.
"There haven't been any incidences at the moment except for threats," said Loran. "You can leave your house and drive in your car and you're as likely to have a problem as you are being on an airplane. [It's] less likely to happen in the air."
At the airport
Like clockwork, the airport was bustling with passengers coming to and from Saskatoon Thursday.
The threats this week didn't seem to deter travellers.
"Well, it was booked and I'm not going to cancel it. You know, I find it funny I guess… I don't know. Maybe I shouldn't," said Hefferan. "I can't explain it. I just think that it's just hoaxes… [I] just don't take it serious. It's not going to stop me from travelling."
Wade Harris was travelling with his family on the same flight and kept the information he gathered from social media very hush-hush.
"I didn't tell my kids but we knew about it and just travelled as normal," said Harris.
Another passenger, Genevieve Thompson, said the only thing on her mind while stepping on the plane was getting home.
"Oh, well, I had to get home didn't I?" she said.
