WestJet, Canada’s equivalent of Southwest Airlines, says it has ordered 20 more Boeing 737-700s to expand its network.

Fourteen of the planes will be delivered in 2012 with the remainder delivered in 2013.

WestJet already has a fleet of 66 planes flying to 64 destinations (not Sea-Tac yet). The budget airline said it is exploring new destinations in the United States and Latin America.

The orders now specify Boeing’s 124-seat 737-700, but the airline said it has the option of converting those orders to the larger, 156-seat 737-800.
