“Today marks the launch of service to a key destination,” said Chris Avery, WestJet Vice-President, Network Planning, Alliances and Corporate Development. “Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport is the fourth-largest airport in the United States, as well as a major hub for our partner, American. Combined, the two airlines offer three round-trip flights between Calgary and Dallas, and beyond that, the opportunity to connect to 16 additional cities as part of our code-sharing agreement. This additional connectivity, combined with the opportunity to earn rewards on both airlines, is an attractive offer for business travellers in particular.”
The WestJet code is also available on American-operated routes connecting through Dallas-Fort Worth to Albuquerque, N.M., Austin, Texas, Nashville, Tenn., Charlotte, N.C., Fort Lauderdale, Fla., Jacksonville, Fla., Kansas City, Mo., Orlando, Fla., Miami, Fla., New Orleans, La., Oklahoma City, Okla., Raleigh-Durham, N.C., San Antonio, Texas, St. Louis, Mo., Tampa Bay, Fla., and Tulsa, Okla.

|1554||Calgary at 10:25 a.m.||Dallas-Fort Worth at 2:58 p.m.||April 29, 2013|

With airline partnerships and upcoming launch of WestJet Encore, WestJet’s network from Calgary International Airport continues to grow and offer travellers more non-stop flights and greater connectivity to more cities than ever before. With the addition of 16 new cities beyond Dallas-Fort Worth, WestJet guests departing from Calgary International Airport can now fly to a total of 50 unique destinations in the United States via our code-share agreement with American.
Also, as part of WestJet’s agreement with American, members of WestJet Rewards can earn WestJet dollars on flights operated by American and its affiliates, American Eagle and AmericanConnection. The agreement provides WestJet Rewards members with the ability to accumulate WestJet dollars faster, especially those guests flying within American’s extensive worldwide network of destinations, including North America, the Caribbean, Latin America, Europe and the Pacific.
