WestJet has entered into a codeshare agreement with China Airlines, allowing the latter to begin marketing and selling WestJet-operated flights.
Codeshare designations will be available on select WestJet flights from Vancouver and Los Angeles.
"We are very excited to announce a codeshare partnership with WestJet's oldest interline partner," declared Chris Avery, vice-president, network planning, alliances, and corporate development. "Just a few years ago, WestJet's agreement with China Airlines laid the groundwork for future interline and codeshare agreements as part of our airline partnership strategy. With 38 partnerships now in place, we continue to bring top-quality airlines on board, along with more services to market for the business traveller. The success of this combined strategy plays a part in WestJet's consistently strong results, and this announcement underscores our efforts."
