Hong Kong Airlines Signs Codeshare Agreement with Westjet

Date: 2017-09-22

Hong Kong Airlines and WestJet announced today that they have entered into a codeshare agreement, which sees Hong Kong Airlines placing its HX marketing code on WestJet-operated flights. The two carriers are building on an existing interline agreement put in place earlier this year.

 

Mr Li Dianchun, Chief Commercial Officer, Hong Kong Airlines said, “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 beyond Vancouver towards Edmonton, Calgary and Toronto is the logical next step. Passengers flying with Hong Kong Airlines can now enjoy a seamless connection experience onto a WestJet flight.”

 

"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 Mr Ed Sims, WestJet Executive Vice-President, Commercial. “This codeshare agreement provides guests on both sides of the Pacific more choice and opportunity to experience excellent service and travel globally. We look forward to welcoming Hong Kong Airline’s guests on board and providing them with our caring WestJet service.”

 

Hong Kong Airlines’ daily Hong Kong-Vancouver service will allow guests to connect onto select WestJet flights from Vancouver to Calgary, Edmonton and Toronto. Tickets can be purchased via travel agents or Hong Kong Airlines’ sales offices and call centres from today onwards.
