Following on from an interline partnership which began in December 2011, WestJet and Aeromexico have signed a codeshare agreement.
The agreement will provide passengers with new connecting services from WestJet’s Canadian network to Mexico City via Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver with the chance to earn WestJet Rewards. Aeromexico's passengers connecting via Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver will have access to 10 Canadian destinations including Calgary, Edmonton, Winnipeg, Ottawa, Halifax, Deer Lake and St. John's.
As part of the codeshare, bags checked with both Aeromexico and WestJet will continue to reach their final destination without a separate check-in at the point of transfer between the carriers.
Both carriers will sell tickets for travel on each other's entire network including non-codeshare flights, providing their respective guests another benefit of the enhanced relationship.
“We welcome this new, enhanced relationship with Aeromexico,” declared Chris Avery, WestJet’s VP network planning, alliances and corporate development. “Guests of both WestJet and Aeromexico will now have opportunities to explore more destinations than ever before.”
