Air Transat announces codeshare alliance with WestJet

Passengers will have more options for transatlantic journeys with the new codeshare.

Canadian airlines Air Transat and WestJet have entered a transatlantic codeshare agreement to provide better connectivity for passengers.

With the new codeshare, passengers will have more options for their transatlantic journeys.

Travellers will now be able to enjoy the convenience of single purchases for connecting flights, check-in for all flights at their first departure and baggage checked through to their final destination.

WestJet will activate a ‘WS’ code on select Air Transat operated flights to and from France, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Switzerland and Croatia.

Starting from 17 May, connections for flight dates through Montreal and Toronto will be provided.

WestJet chief commercial officer John Weatherill said: “This new codeshare with Air Transat complements our growing global network, allowing WestJet to offer guests exciting new destinations in Europe.”

From 4 May, Air Transat will activate its ‘TS’ code on select WestJet flights and provide itineraries connecting select WestJet flights with Air Transat European destinations.

Upon activation, codeshare ticket sales for both airlines will be performed through the carriers’ websites and call centres, as well as through key global distribution systems (GDS) and travel agencies.

Air Transat network, revenue management and pricing vice-president Michèle Barre said: “The complementarity of our respective networks allows us to offer more alternatives to our customers, providing them with a quality and affordable product.

“This partnership is part of Air Transat’s development strategy, enhancing our long-standing presence in the transatlantic market.”
