A second phase of the codeshare agreement between Air Transat and Porter Airlines, which launched last October, has been announced.
Canadian and European travellers can now take advantage of additional routes linking Canada to destinations in the South, the U.S. and Europe, according to a press release issued Friday (May 19).
The partnership allows Porter's domestic flights to be combined with Air Transat's flights via a connection at Montreal-Trudeau International Airport (YUL) and now Toronto Pearson Airport (YYZ).
The codeshare agreement is the "best industry standard" for connections between two airlines, Air Transat said.
"It expands the range of routes and destinations available, including the possibility of combining flights from both carriers on a single ticket. Passengers are also protected in the event of a flight delay or cancellation."
Travellers departing from Toronto Billy Bishop, Toronto Pearson, Montreal, Ottawa, Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton and Halifax will be able to combine a domestic Porter Airlines flight with an Air Transat flight to Europe, the South, the United States or Canada.
The codeshare flights are currently available for bookings made via most distribution channels starting June 1.
