The carriers are building on an existing interline agreement put in place earlier this year.
“Our newly launched daily service between Hong Kong and Vancouver has been a great success and this codeshare agreement with WestJet, which extends our network in Canada… is the logical next step,” Hong Kong Airlines Chief Commercial Officer Li Dianchun said.
Hong Kong Airlines’ daily Hong Kong-Vancouver service will allow guests to connect onto select WestJet flights from Vancouver to Calgary, Edmonton and Toronto.
“We welcome Hong Kong Airlines as our newest codeshare partner and congratulate them on their inaugural service to Vancouver in June of this year,” said Ed Sims, WestJet executive vice-president commercial. “This codeshare agreement provides guests on both sides of the Pacific with more choices and opportunities to experience excellent service and travel globally,” he added.
Tickets can be purchased via travel agents or Hong Kong Airlines’ sales offices and call centers.
Established in 2006, Hong Kong Airlines is a full-service airline firmly rooted in Hong Kong. Its wide destination network covers close to 40 major cities across the Asia Pacific region and North America.
Hong Kong Airlines is represented in Greece and Cyprus by Discover the World.
Low cost carrier WestJet and its regional airline, WestJet Encore, offer scheduled services to more than 100 destinations in North America, Central America, the Caribbean and Europe and to more than 175 destinations in over 20 countries through airline partnerships.
