WestJet, British Airways ink codeshare agreement

WestJet Airlines and British Airways have signed a new codeshare agreement enhancing its previously interline agreement with the UK carrier. BA will sell seats on WestJet flights easing the way for its passengers to make regional connections in Canada.
“We’re excited because British Airways is such an iconic image in the airline world,” said WestJet spokesperson Robert Palmer. “This one, obviously, is very, very big for us in terms of its prestige.”
British Airways will use its own “BA” code on WestJet flights connecting from Vancouver, Calgary and Toronto to Ottawa, Edmonton, and Victoria.
WestJet has been pursuing codeshare partnerships since September 2011 and it now has agreements with American Airlines, Cathay Pacific, China Eastern Airlines, Delta Air Lines, Japan Airlines, KLM and Korean Air. It also has 20 interline relationships.
