WestJet expands codeshare with KLM

WestJet adds AMS connections to 20 European cities with KLM codeshare

CALGARY — WestJet’s WS code has been added to KLM-operated flights as part of its long-standing codeshare relationship with KLM.

Through the codeshare, WestJet passengers have convenient access via Amsterdam’s Schiphol Airport (AMS) to and from 20 cities including Vienna, Brussels, Copenhagen, Frankfurt, Athens, Milan, Lisbon, Glasgow, and Manchester across 12 European countries.

Combined with the restart of WestJet’s nonstop 787 Dreamliner service between Amsterdam and Calgary on Nov. 14, the resumption of the codesharing on KLM operated flights will give passengers greater access between Canadian and European points for travellers on both sides of the Atlantic

“Our guests will benefit from more opportunities to travel between Europe and Canada with this important codesharing with our partner KLM,” said John Weatherill, WestJet Chief Commercial Officer. “We look forward to strengthening travel and tourism ties between the countries served by our global networks, supported by the return of our nonstop Dreamliner service from Calgary to Amsterdam.”

From Calgary, flights depart at 8:10 p.m., arriving in Amsterdam at 12:40 p.m. On the return leg, flights depart Amsterdam at 2:40 p.m., arriving in Calgary at 3:39 pm.
