Air Canada announced today that it has expanded
its codeshare agreement with Star Alliance partner Lufthansa German Airlines
to include flights to and from Warsaw, Poland. Effective June 30, 2001, Air
Canada will offer its customers daily codeshare service on Lufthansa operated
flights between Frankfurt and Warsaw, subject to government approval.
“We are very pleased to offer our international customers improved access
to Poland`s capital,” said Danielle Poudrette, Vice President, Marketing.
“With the addition of Warsaw to our transatlantic network, we continue to
build on the strong relationship with our Star Alliance partner Lufthansa to
provide our customers with additional choice for onward connections at
Lufthansa`s hub in Frankfurt.”
The codeshare flights will allow for the best possible connections in
Frankfurt to all Air Canada/Lufthansa joint flights to and from Montréal,
Toronto, Calgary and Vancouver.
Customers will enjoy the usual Star Alliance benefits, including through
check-in, lounge access as well as qualifying mileage accumulation and
