Deal “opens skies between North America and Europe”
WestJet and Icelandair have launched a new interline agreement “opening up the skies” for passengers connecting between the Americas and more than 20 Icelandair destinations in Europe. Passengers can book a single combined e-ticket for WestJet and Icelandair flights that includes single check-in for all flights and baggage sent through to the final destination.
Connecting in the Americas, Icelandair customers will be able to connect via Toronto and Halifax and fly on WestJet’s fleet of Boeing 737 Next-Generation aircraft to around 80 cities in North and Central America and the Caribbean.
Icelandair expanded its seasonal service from Toronto earlier in 2013 to a year-round operation, with plans to increase capacity next summer. The airline will also resume seasonal service to Halifax with two flights a week starting on 1 June 2013.
