Air Canada and Aer Lingus Sign Interline Agreement
Air Canada and Aer Lingus announced that they have signed an interline agreement. Effective immediately, the agreement will simplify travel between Canada and Ireland, and is a step towards a full code-sharing relationship between the two airlines expected to be finalized next year.
Thanks to the agreement, passengers flying on Air Canada and Aer Lingus will now be able to use either airline’s check-in kiosks, as well as through check their baggage to their final destination. When the code share agreement goes into effect next year, it will be accompanied by year-round flights between Canada and Ireland.
Air Canada currently offers nonstop daily service between Toronto and Dublin from June until October 13. Customers can connect through London’s Heathrow Airport, where the airline operates from eight Air Canada gates with 12 daily flights during the summer and nine in the winter months. Aer Lingus operates 23 flights daily from London Heathrow to Dublin, Belfast, Cork, and Shannon.
