  • WestJet's guests will have non-stop access to Mexico City from Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver and convenient connections to Mexico City from WestJet's extensive network throughout Canada

CALGARY, Jan. 13, 2016 /CNW/ - Aeromexico, Mexico's global airline, and WestJet, Canada's highest-rated airline for customer service, have signed a code-sharing agreement. Aeromexico and WestJet have had an interline relationship since December 2011.

The new agreement will give Aeromexico's customers enhanced connecting service via Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver to more than 10 Canadian destinations including Calgary, Edmonton, Winnipeg, Ottawa, Halifax, Deer Lake and St. John's, among others.

The agreement provides WestJet guests new connecting service from WestJet's extensive Canadian network to Mexico City via Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver.  In addition, WestJet will also now sell non-stop flights to and from Mexico City from Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver. WestJet Rewards are available on these flights as well.

Both Aeromexico and WestJet will also sell tickets for travel on each other's entire network including non-code-sharing flights, providing their respective guests another benefit of the enhanced relationship.

As part of their cooperation, 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.

Aeromexico's Chief Revenue Management Officer, Anko van der Werff, said, "Our airline is always looking to offer its customers the best connecting service, and this code-sharing agreement with WestJet allows it to include more destinations and flights to and from Canada to different regions of the world."

"We welcome this new, enhanced relationship with Aeromexico," said Chris Avery, WestJet Vice-President, Network Planning, Alliances and Corporate Development. "Guests of both WestJet and Aeromexico will now have opportunities to explore more destinations than ever before."
