Effective from Friday 21st September 2012, Aer Lingus and Air Canada have implemented an Interline E-Ticketing Agreement. A codeshare agreement is also expected in early 2013.
Customers flying with Aer Lingus and Air Canada now have the additional flexibility and ease offered by using a single electronic ticket. The Interline ET agreement also allows customers to use both carriers’ check-in kiosks and to check their baggage through to their final destinations.
Stephen Kavanagh, Aer Lingus Chief Commercial Officer, said: “We are delighted to announce this new partnership. We look forward to working closely with Air Canada to provide our customers with seamless travel options between Ireland and Canada.”
“Air Canada is pleased to interline with Aer Lingus, as this will enhance access from Canada to Ireland,” said Yves Dufresne, Vice-President Alliances, International Operations and Regulatory Affairs at Air Canada. “We also look forward to deepening our relationship with Aer Lingus through a codeshare agreement in the first quarter of 2013 to further improve our customers’ travel experience.”
