WestJet, Delta expand frequent flyer agreement

CALGARY — WestJet has expanded its reciprocal frequent flyer agreement with Delta Air Lines, allowing passengers to redeem WestJet dollars on new select Delta routes.

These routes include Paris, Tokyo, Rome, Madrid, Hong Kong, Shanghai and Sydney (Australia). Meanwhile, Delta SkyMiles Members can now redeem miles anywhere WestJet flies.

Since 2014, members of both airlines’ frequent flyer programs have been able to earn their choice of WestJet dollars or miles with Delta when travelling on flights of either airline. WestJet Rewards members have also been able to redeem WestJet dollars on WestJet-marketed code-share flights operated by Delta since 2014.

For the past three years, members have enjoyed earning WestJet dollars on Delta-operated flights and we are thrilled to now offer the ability to redeem WestJet dollars for Delta flights to some very exciting global destinations. We are equally excited to welcome Delta SkyMiles Members aboard and offer them the opportunity to earn and redeem miles for everywhere WestJet flies,” said Marshall Wilmot, WestJet Senior Vice-President, Marketing and Digital. “WestJet is determined to make WestJet Rewards the most flexible and rewarding travel program in Canada, and today’s announcement is a significant step towards delivering on that vision.”
