Delta and WestJet expand their codeshare agreement

Delta Air Lines (Atlanta) and WestJet Airlines (Calgary) today announced a new codesharing agreement on flights within the United States and Canada, further expanding the partnership between the two carriers. The codeshare flights are available for purchase now for service beginning on January 23, 2012.

Last year, the two airlines began an interline agreement that allowed customers to purchase connecting flights on one ticket, receive boarding passes for all segments at their first check-in, and tag bags through to their final destination.

Under the first phase of the new codeshare agreement, Delta will place its code on WestJet flights to more than 15 cities, while the WestJet code will be added to Delta flights on five markets, expanding the networks of both airlines for customers flying between the two countries. Members of the Delta Air Lines’ SkyMiles® program and WestJet’s Frequent Guest Program® will be able to earn miles or rewards on the codeshare flights, providing customers another benefit of the enhanced relationship.
