Air Transat and WestJet, two of Canada’s leading airlines, have agreed to cooperate on a codeshare that will soon allow customers to book transatlantic travel involving both carriers on a single ticket with through-checked bags. The cooperation will bring more choice to consumers by enabling transatlantic codeshare connections above and beyond what the carriers offer with their own flights.
WestJet’s code will be placed on Air Transat flights to select cities in Europe, and likewise Air Transat’s code will be placed on select WestJet flights in North America to enable both carriers to offer the connecting transatlantic itineraries.
The codeshare agreement is scheduled to be implemented in early 2022, subject to receipt of all customary regulatory approvals. Additional details and benefits will be communicated once finalized.
