CALGARY, CANADA — Canada's second-largest airline and Korean flag carrier expanded their long-standing codeshare agreement with the placement of WestJet's codeshare on Korean's flights between both Toronto Pearson (YYZ) and Vancouver International (YVR) in Canada and Incheon International Airport (ICN) in Seoul, South Korea.

This is WestJet's first reciprocal codeshare with an Asian partner. With WestJet's "WS" code now active for sale on Korean's flights to Seoul, guests have more opportunities than ever before to combine WestJet and Korean flights to meet their trans-Pacific travel needs.

"It's incredibly exciting for WestJet to codeshare on flights across the Pacific to Asia for the first time. We've had a strong codeshare with Korean since 2012, and we're very pleased to be taking this important step with a world-class partner like Korean," said John Weatherill, WestJet Chief Commercial Officer.

"We're looking forward to the new opportunities our now reciprocal codeshare will bring to consumers traveling between Canada and Asia."

The WestJet codeshare is now available through WestJet's website and call center and through all of WestJet's travel agent partners. WestJet Rewards members will be entitled to earn and redeem WestJet Dollars on these WestJet codeshare tickets.

"We are delighted to expand our codeshare partnership with our long-standing partner WestJet, and look forward to delivering unparalleled services across the Pacific to our valued customers," said Tae Joon Kim, Korean Air Senior Vice President and Head of International Affairs & Alliance.

"We remain committed to bridging Canada, Korea, and Asia through our hub at Incheon Airport."
