WestJet has announced an expanded codeshare agreement with Air France, providing Canadians with improved access from Paris to seven cities in France, Italy and Greece.
"WestJet's deepened codeshare relationship with Air France means guests of both airlines will now enjoy more opportunities to travel between the fantastic destinations in Canada and Europe," said Brian Znotins, VP, Network Planning and Alliances for WestJet.
"We are thrilled to extend our reach into Europe and provide a seamless travel experience for guests travelling east and west, including reciprocal frequent flyer rewards, one itinerary and bags checked through to destination."
Effective immediately, guests travelling on WestJet's service CDG can connect on WS codeshare flights operated by Air France to Brest, Biarritz, Montpellier, Venice, Milan, Rome and Athens.
Future phases will expand WestJet codesharing on AF-operated flights via Paris to additional countries including Austria, Germany and Portugal.
WS and AF have been codeshare partners since 2013 and the airlines have offered Air France Flying Blue and WestJet Rewards members the reciprocal ability to earn and redeem loyalty rewards since 2017.
