WestJet’s inaugural Dreamliner flight between Calgary and Paris’ Charles de Gaulle Airport is set to take-off on May 17, 2019. The carrier’s brand-new 787-9 Dreamliner features WestJet’s Business Cabin including lie-flat pods and dining on demand.

“WestJet’s deepened codeshare relationship with Air France means guests of both airlines will now enjoy more opportunities to travel between the fantastic destinations in Canada and Europe,” said Brian Znotins, WestJet vice-president, Network Planning and Alliances. “We are thrilled to extend our reach into Europe and provide a seamless travel experience for guests travelling east and west, including reciprocal frequent flyer rewards, one itinerary and bags checked through to destination.”

Starting immediately, guests travelling on WestJet’s service to Paris’ Charles de Gaulle Airport (CDG) can connect on WestJet codeshare flights operated by Air France to Brest, Biarritz and Montpellier, France; Venice, Milan and Rome, Italy; and Athens, Greece. Guests travelling from these European destinations can connect to WestJet’s extensive Canadian network through the airline’s hub in Calgary, Alberta.

Future phases will expand WestJet codesharing on Air France operated flights via Paris to additional countries including Austria, Germany and Portugal.

WestJet and Air France have been codeshare partners since 2013.
