American Airlines and WestJet Airlines have entered into a comprehensive codeshare agreement that will give customers of both airlines more choices and greater connectivity when travelling between the United States and Canada, as well as across American's worldwide network.

The codeshare relationship allows American to place its AA code on WestJet flights, and WestJet to place its WS code on flights of American Airlines.

The placement of the AA code on WestJet flights will provide American's customers seamless connecting service to nearly 20 Canadian cities not currently served by American or American Eagle. Initially, American will place its code on flights in the following markets: Montreal to Winnipeg and Toronto to Edmonton.

By placing its WS code on American's flights, WestJet will be offering its guests service to more than 30 new American U.S. destinations. WestJet will add these codeshare routes in phases, starting with the WS code on American flights to Dallas/Fort Worth and Los Angeles via Toronto, with expanded service throughout the American Airlines network expected in the near future.

Members of the American Airlines AAdvantage program and WestJet's Frequent Guest Program can now also earn miles or rewards on the codeshare flights.

"We are delighted to launch this important strategic alliance to offer our guests more travel choices through American's expansive list of U.S. and global destinations," said Hugh Dunleavy, WestJet's Executive Vice-President, Strategy and Planning. "With this important milestone in our history, we continue to deliver on our strategic plan to seek commercial agreements with valued partners in major geographical regions around the world."
