WestJet codeshare on flights to Tokyo, Japan is now available through an expanded partnership with Japan Airlines


WestJet today announced enhancements to its codeshare agreement with Japan Airlines, allowing the airline to use the “WS” code on flights operated by Japan Airlines (JAL) between Vancouver International Airport (YVR) and Narita International Airport (NRT) in Tokyo, Japan.

With the addition of Tokyo as a destination available for sale to guests on WestJet.com and through the airline’s call center and travel business partners, WestJet guests can now seamlessly book travel to Tokyo via Vancouver from across the airline’s domestic network.

“As transpacific air travel between Canada and Japan continues to grow, the time is perfect to begin this new step in our partnership with Japan Airlines,” said John Weatherill, Chief Commercial Officer, WestJet. “Both of our countries have significant inbound and outbound tourism markets and this enhancement will bring more convenient options for travelers on both sides of the Pacific.”

This new development expands the long-standing codeshare agreement between WestJet and Japan Airlines that has been in place since 2011.

Ross Leggett, deputy senior vice president of route marketing, international relations and alliances at Japan Airlines, said: “Japan Airlines is excited to strengthen our codeshare partnership with WestJet by offering passengers more opportunities to travel between Japan and Canada. WestJet is an excellent partner and we are committed to offering passengers a seamless connection.

Codeshare will offer optimized connecting times between WestJet and Japan Airlines flights, through check-in and baggage check-in to the final destination at the first point of departure, and the ability to earn and redeem WestJet Dollars for WestJet Rewards members.
