WestJet has entered into a code-share agreement with British Airways, enabling British Airways to market and sell WestJet-operated flights.
Effective immediately, the “BA” code will be placed on select WestJet flights connecting from Vancouver, Calgary and Toronto to Ottawa, Edmonton, and Victoria.
Lynne Embleton, British Airways’ director of strategy and business units, said: “Our partnership with WestJet is great news for our customers. It will enable easier travel from Canada’s gateway cities to destinations that have been more difficult to access from the U.K.”
This is the eighth code-share agreement for WestJet. Since September 2011, WestJet has initiated code-shares with American Airlines, Cathay Pacific, China Eastern Airlines, Delta Air Lines, Japan Airlines, KLM and Korean Air.
Additionally, WestJet has 20 interline relationships, further connecting world-wide passenger flows to WestJet’s extensive network. WestJet and British Airways previously announced an interline agreement in October 2010.
Bookings can be made through British Airways or preferred travel agencies.
