WestJet has initiated the placement of its “WS” codeshare on KLM-operated flights as part of its long-standing codeshare relationship with KLM Royal Dutch Airlines.
Through the codeshare, guests will have convenient access via Amsterdam’s Schiphol Airport (AMS) to and from 20 cities including Vienna, Brussels, Copenhagen, Frankfurt, Athens, Milan, Lisbon, Glasgow, and Manchester across 12 European countries.
Combined with the restart of WestJet’s non-stop 787 Dreamliner service between Amsterdam and Calgary on Nov. 14, 2022, the resumption of the codesharing on KLM operated flights will give guests greater access between Canadian and European points for travellers on both sides of the Atlantic.
John Weatherill, WestJet Chief Commercial Officer, said: “Our guests will benefit from more opportunities to travel between Europe and Canada with this important codesharing with our partner KLM.”
Weatherill continued: “We look forward to strengthening travel and tourism ties between the countries served by our global networks, supported by the return of our non-stop Dreamliner service from Calgary to Amsterdam.”
Guests using the codeshare will gain a host of benefits, including optimized AMS connections, through check in for all flights at their first departure, baggage checked through to their final destination, and the ability to earn and use WestJet Rewards dollars on all flights.
