WestJet has signed a code-sharing agreement with Aeromexico, the Calgary-based airline announced on Wednesday January 13th.

These two airlines have had an interline relationship since December 2011, but this new pact opens things up even more.

The new agreement will give Aeromexico’s customers better connecting service via Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver to other cities in Canada, including Calgary and Edmonton, the airline said.

The deal also gives WestJet passengers non-stop access to Mexico City from Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver, plus easier connections from WestJet’s Canadian network to Mexico City, it said.

Both Aeromexico and WestJet will also sell tickets for travel on each other’s entire network, including non-code-sharing flights.

“Guests of both WestJet and Aeromexico will now have opportunities to explore more destinations than ever before,” Chris Avery, WestJet vice-president, network planning, alliances and corporate development, said in a news release.
