CALGARY - Pilots at WestJet have accepted a new contract.

The airline says the deal includes improved pay and scheduling that it says places the airline's more than 12-hundred pilots among the highest paid in Canada's airline industry.

Statements from the airline and the WestJet Pilot Association issued on Sunday did not give any specifics of the contract.

The four-year deal, which was hammered out last month, will expire April 30, 2019.

WestJet flies to more than 120 destinations in more than 20 countries.
