With effect from this upcoming southern summer/northern winter season, major Canadian airline WestJet (so-called because it is based in Western Canada) will be selling tickets to passengers for flights to both Cape Town and Johannesburg, among other destinations in Africa and Asia. This is the result of an expanded codeshare agreement that the carrier has signed with UK airline Virgin Atlantic. “Through the expansion of our existing partnership with Virgin Atlantic, we are unlocking amazing opportunities for our guests to access an extensive list of new destinations and to experience Virgin Atlantic’s innovative products and services beyond London,” highlighted WestJet Executive VP and COO John Weatherill. “With daily flights from our global hub in Calgary to London, Canadians have never had better international access from across Western Canada to the United Kingdom and beyond.”
