To provide mutual benefit for both Canadian and Australian passengers, Air Canada and Virgin Australia have signed a new strategic co-operation agreement, which would provide more travel options to Australia, Canada and New Zealand.
The first stage of the agreement will be executed in early 2017, enabling Air Canada to share its code on Virgin Australia’s flights to different cities in Australia and New Zealand.
In the subsequent phases, the carriers will offer reciprocal frequent flyer redemption benefits for select passengers and Virgin will begin code sharing on Air Canada's flights between the cities of Canada and Australia.
