Travel News Asia 13 November 2002

Air Canada is expanding its air service between Canada and Spain. Effective November 14, 2002, Air Canada will offer flights to Bilbao, Valencia, Alicante, Tenerife and Las Palmas on a codeshare basis via Madrid in cooperation with its partner, Spanair.

Flights are scheduled to provide customers with convenient connections to Air Canada's non-stop Toronto- Madrid service. Members of Air Canada's frequent flyer program, Aeroplan, enjoy accumulation and redemption benefits on these new services. 

"Expansion of Air Canada's codeshare flights to serve a total of eight domestic Spain destinations builds on our non-stop service between Toronto and Madrid," said Ross MacCormack, Senior Vice President, International and Alliances. "The growth in Air Canada's partnership with Spanair, soon to become a Star Alliance member, improves access for our customers to more European destinations and contributes to the strength of the Star Alliance global network."

Air Canada inaugurated non-stop service between Toronto and Madrid April 7, 2002 offering convenient connections to codeshare flights operated by its partner, Spanair, to Barcelona, Malaga and Palma de Mallorca as well as flights to Lisbon, Portugal. Members of the airlines' frequent flier programs, Aeroplan and Spanair Plus, benefit from reciprocal accumulation and redemption of reward miles. Spanair is scheduled to become a member of Star Alliance in spring 2003.
