Within this codesharing agreement between WestJet and the French airline, the Canadian carrier has extended its service from Calgary to Paris CDG to a year-round service.

Commenting on the codesharing deal was Chris Avery, the Canadian airline’s Vice President of Commercial Development:

“WestJet is thrilled to more than double our current destination offerings through our codeshare agreement, significantly expanding opportunities for Canadians to turn their dream European getaways into a reality”.

“As we prepare for our first year of winter flying to Paris, today’s announcement marks an important milestone in our partnership, that will bolster seamless connectivity between Canada and desirable destinations such as Nice in the south of France, Helsinki in Finland and sunny Valencia in Spain,”

Adding to this was Fahmi Mahjoub, Air France-KLM’s Senior VP of Alliances:

“Air France and WestJet have a long-standing and extensive relationship with already more than 23 destinations offered across Canada under Air France code. With this development we are expanding the cooperation further and are honored to welcome WestJet’s guests onboard our European network.”

Overall, this is a significant step for both sides, especially on the perspective of WestJet by being able to connect its customers to other destinations across Europe.
