Search ASIA Travel Tips .com Latest Travel News Send to Friend Friday, 6 February 2009

WestJet, Air France and KLM have signed a memorandum of understanding to build a new commercial relationship between the three airlines.

This memorandum of understanding allows the airlines to begin working on building a codesharing agreement in late 2009 or early 2010. Prior to this, the carriers will contemplate additional opportunities including an interline agreement, namely acceptance of each other’s e-tickets, and through check-in of baggage and passengers, technology permitting. Possibilities for future frequent flyer program cooperation are to be explored as well.

A codesharing agreement would involve the Canadian gateways of Calgary, Montréal, Toronto and Vancouver where guests of the three airlines would connect with each other’s networks.

This memorandum of understanding is another step in WestJet’s strategy to increase connectivity, bringing additional travellers to its network as well as offering more access for its guests to new destinations.

For Air France and KLM, it is a great opportunity to strengthen their position in services to Canada and increase the number of destinations offered to passengers.
