Search ASIA Travel Tips .com Latest Travel News Send to Friend Tuesday, 21 April 2009

Air Canada and fellow Star Alliance partner TAP Portugal have entered into a codeshare agreement that will create more travel options and better connections for customers travelling between Canada and Portugal.

Under the agreement TAP and Air Canada have begun offering code-share flights between Canada and Portugal via selected points.

 Services between Canadian cities such as Toronto, Montreal, Calgary, Ottawa, and the Portuguese cities of Lisbon and Porto, have been added to both carriers' networks.

This provides significant benefits to both Air Canada and TAP customers, including simplified booking, reciprocal travel reward accumulation, seamless connections on a single ticket, and baggage check-through to final destination.

"Implementing this codeshare agreement with Air Canada, one of the founding members of Star Alliance, is an important step towards developing closer commercial ties with one of the leading and most innovative airlines in the World," said Josť Guedes Dias, VP Alliances & External Relations, TAP Portugal. "At the same time we can offer our customers a wide range of direct and more convenient services between Portugal and Canada that we expect will particularly benefit the large Portuguese Community in Canada and the business and tourism segments in general."

The agreement provides for TAP to place its code, TP, on Air Canada flights between Canadian cities and international gateways, such as: Newark (USA), London (UK) or Madrid (Spain).

 It also allows Air Canada to place its flight code, AC, on flights operated by TAP Portugal between Lisbon or Porto and the above-mentioned gateways. Both carriers will thus offer services between Portugal and Canada, via selected connecting points, each one using its own code throughout the entire itinerary.
