WestJet on Monday announced that its long-standing codeshare with KLM Royal Dutch Airlines is expanding.
WestJet will now give its guests more options in Europe via connections through Amsterdam’s Schiphol Airport—the carrier is adding 18 new cities across Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Portugal, Spain, and the U.K.
The expansion will kick off with service between Amsterdam and Calgary International Airport on Aug. 5, 2021. That service will operate two times weekly in August before expanding to three times weekly in September.
With the codeshare expansion, guests will then be able to connect via KLM to Vienna, Brussels, Toulouse, Lyon, Montpellier, Frankfurt, Munich, Berlin, Hanover, Milan, Venice, Lisbon, Madrid, Glasgow, Edinburgh, Manchester, and London.
"Through this expanded codeshare relationship with KLM our guests will benefit from new opportunities to travel between Europe and Canada," said John Weatherill, WestJet Chief Commercial Officer. "Our Dreamliner service to Amsterdam combined with convenient connections on a world-class partner like KLM is an exciting step as we work to support the safe restart of international travel."
