WestJet and Korean Air have expanded their long-standing codeshare agreement with the placement of WestJet’s codeshare on Korean’s flights between both Toronto Pearson (YYZ) and Vancouver International (YVR) in Canada and Incheon International Airport (ICN) in Seoul, South Korea.
The agreement marks WestJet’s first reciprocal codeshare with an Asian partner. With WestJet’s “WS” code now active for sale on Korean’s flights to Seoul, guests have more opportunities than ever before to combine WestJet and Korean flights to meet their trans-Pacific travel needs.
John Weatherill, WestJet Chief Commercial Officer, said: “It’s incredibly exciting for WestJet to codeshare on flights across the Pacific to Asia for the first time. We’ve had a strong codeshare with Korean since 2012 and we’re very pleased to be taking this important step with a world-class partner like Korean.”
And Weatherill continued: “We’re looking forward to the new opportunities our now reciprocal codeshare will bring to consumers travelling between Canada and Asia.”
The WestJet codeshare is now available through WestJet’s website and call centre, and through all WestJet’s travel agent partners.
WestJet Rewards members will be entitled to earn and redeem WestJet Dollars on these WestJet codeshare tickets.
Tae Joon Kim, Korean Air Senior Vice President and Head of International Affairs & Alliance, said: “We are delighted to expand our codeshare partnership with our long-standing partner WestJet, and look forward to delivering unparalleled services across the Pacific to our valued customers. We remain committed to bridging Canada, Korea and Asia through our hub at Incheon Airport.”
