“We’re proud that Canadians have welcomed McCafé into their homes and daily routines, and now our partnership with WestJet lets us take this connection to even greater heights for Canadian coffee lovers.”

According to CBC, the coffee will be free of charge and served alongside other drinks, such as water, juice and tea.

McDonald’s loyalty card members can also benefit from the peelable sticker point and loyalty card with every cup.

The Toronto Star reports that when asked if other popular McDonald’s products, such as Chicken McNuggets, will be introduced, WestJet CEO Gregg Saretsky said: “Possibly. We really want to make sure we get the coffee right first.”
