WestJet, Korean launch code-share deal

WestJet has rolled out its new codeshare arrangement with Korean Air, with tickets now available for flights beginning May 31, 2012. This new codeshare deal allows Korean Air to market and distribute WestJet-operated flights by placing its “KE” flight indicator on WestJet-operated flights in North America. This will enhance the travel possibilities for Korean Air guests by allowing seamless access to over 70 flights within WestJet’s North American network. John MacLeod, WestJet vice-president, network management and alliances, said: “This codeshare agreement represents another key step in our strategy to welcome on board new guests from around the world.” Along with its deal with Korean Air, WestJet now has codeshare agreements in place with American Airlines, Cathay Pacific, Delta Air Lines, Japan Airlines, and KLM. WestJet also has interline agreements with another 17 airlines around the world. Go to for more.
