JAL and WestJet launch codeshare agreement

Japan Airlines (JAL) and WestJet Airlines (WestJet) have entered into a codeshare agreement which will add  four Canadian cities to JAL  international destination network.

This new codeshare agreement will place the “JL” flight indicator on WestJet-operated flights between Vancouver and six Canadian cities – Calgary, Edmonton, Kelowna, Montreal, Toronto and Winnipeg, from the 15th December 2011. Reservations and ticket sales for these flights will begin tomorrow, the 14th December 2011.

WestJet pioneered low-cost flying in Canada when it started in 1996 and has since then, grown to become the country’s second largest airline, operating flights to 71 cities in North America and the Caribbean. They have a modern fleet of 96 Boeing Next-Generation 737 aircraft and 8,300 employees, offering customers increased legroom, leather seats and live seatback television provided by Bell TV.

The latest agreement with WestJet will expand the total number of Canadian cities in the JAL network from three to seven, enabling customers to connect smoothly between the daily JAL Narita Vancouver flight and Calgary, Edmonton, Kelowna and Winnipeg, in addition to Montreal, Ottawa and Toronto.
