WestJet and Pacific Coastal Airlines launch new interline collaboration

WestJet, Korean Air enhance codeshare partnership

CALGARY — WestJet and Korean Air have expanded their long-standing codeshare agreement with the placement of WestJet’s codeshare on Korean’s flights between both Toronto Pearson and Vancouver International, and Incheon International Airport.

This is WestJet’s first reciprocal codeshare with an Asian partner.  With WestJet’s WS code now active for sale on Korean’s flights to Seoul, passengers can combine WestJet and Korean flights to meet their trans-Pacific travel needs.

“It’s incredibly exciting for WestJet to codeshare on flights across the Pacific to Asia for the first time. We’ve had a strong codeshare with Korean since 2012 and we’re very pleased to be taking this important step with a world-class partner like Korean,” said WestJet’s Chief Commercial Officer, John Weatherill. “We’re looking forward to the new opportunities our now reciprocal codeshare will bring to consumers travelling between Canada and Asia.”

The WestJet codeshare is now available through WestJet’s website and call centre, and through all WestJet’s travel agent partners.

WestJet Rewards members can earn and redeem WestJet Dollars on the WestJet codeshare tickets.

“We are delighted to expand our codeshare partnership with our long-standing partner WestJet, and look forward to delivering unparalleled services across the Pacific to our valued customers,” said Tae Joon Kim, Korean Air Senior VP and Head of International Affairs & Alliance. “We remain committed to bridging Canada, Korea and Asia through our hub at Incheon Airport.”
