A Westjet Boeing 737-700, registration C-GWJO performing flight WS-1232 from Toronto,ON (Canada) to Fort Lauderdale,FL (USA) with 127 people on board, had been cleared for takeoff from Toronto's runway 24L but lined up runway 24R and initiated the takeoff run. The Tower Controller detected the aircraft on takeoff run at that point, checked the situation and found no conflicting traffic and instructed the aircraft to continue takeoff. The aircraft became safely airborne on runway 24R and continued to Fort Lauderdale for a safe landing.

On Feb 16th 2015 Canada's TSB made the occurrence known and reported tower controller observed the aircraft accelerating for takeof from runway 24R instead of cleared 24L. There was no conflicting traffic or risk of collision, the controller therefore instructed the aircraft to continue takeoff. The operator is investigating the occurrence.
