WestJet has entered into a codeshare agreement with Philippine Airlines (PAL), allowing the carrier to begin marketing and selling WestJet-operated flights.
The two carriers are building on an existing interline agreement that has been in place since May 2013.
Codeshare designations will be available on select WestJet flights from Vancouver and Toronto, and all codeshare sales are offered directly through Philippine Airlines or through their global distribution network.
“The Philippine Airlines-WestJet enhanced partnership, via the new codeshare agreement, allows PAL to carry its passengers to key Canadian domestic points. On the other hand, PAL passengers may also connect to WestJet’s other domestic points as well as its international destinations through the existing interline agreement. This alliance provides our passengers with wider reach, greater travel flexibility and convenience. It also doubles PAL’s network reach in North America from five points – Vancouver, Toronto, Los Angeles, San Francisco and New York (beginning March 15) – to 10 in one stroke,” said PAL senior vice-president, Commercial Group, David A. Lim.
