WestJet, Aeromexico Sign Code-Share Deal

WestJet and Aeromexico have signed a code-sharing agreement. The new deal will give Aeromexico’s customers enhanced connecting service via Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver to more than 10 Canadian destinations including Calgary, Edmonton, Winnipeg, Ottawa, Halifax, Deer Lake and St. John’s, among others.

The agreement provides WestJet guests new connecting service from WestJet’s extensive Canadian network to Mexico City via Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver.

In addition, WestJet will also now sell non-stop flights to and from Mexico City from Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver. WestJet Rewards are available on these flights as well.

WestJet’s vice-president, network planning, alliances and corporate development, Chris Avery commented: “We welcome this new, enhanced relationship with Aeromexico. Guests of both WestJet and Aeromexico will now have opportunities to explore more destinations than ever before.”

Aeromexico’s chief revenue management officer, Anko van der Werff, observed: “Our airline is always looking to offer its customers the best connecting service, and this code-sharing agreement with WestJet allows it to include more destinations and flights to and from Canada to different regions of the world.”

Both Aeromexico and WestJet will also sell tickets for travel on each other’s entire network including non-code-sharing flights, providing their respective guests another benefit of the enhanced relationship.

As part of their cooperation, bags checked with both Aeromexico and WestJet will continue to reach their final destination without a separate check-in at the point of transfer between the carriers.

Aeromexico and WestJet have had an interline relationship since December 2011.
