Travel between North America and the Far East received a further boost last week with Canadian carrier WestJet and Hong Kong Airlines signing a codeshare agreement.
The package sees Hong Kong Airlines placing its HX marketing code on WestJet-operated flights and follows an existing interline agreement put in place between the two carriers earlier this year.
WestJet executive vice-president, commercial Ed Sims said: “We welcome Hong Kong Airlines as our newest codeshare partner and congratulate them on their inaugural service to Vancouver in June of this year.
“This agreement gives 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 Airlines’ guests on board.”
Hong Kong Airlines chief commercial officer Li Dian Chun added: “Our newly-launched daily service between Hong Kong and Vancouver has been a great success, and this agreement with WestJet, which extends our network in Canada beyond Vancouver, is the logical next step.
“Passengers flying with Hong Kong Airlines can now enjoy a seamless connection experience on to WestJet flights from Vancouver to Calgary, Edmonton and Toronto.”
