DSC_5059 (1)Delta Air Lines and WestJet announced plans for a new transborder joint venture.

The joint venture will allow the two carriers to coordinate flight schedules, as well as expanded codesharing on the carriers’ existing networks in the United States and Canada.

In addition, reciprocal benefits for top tier members of both airlines’ frequent flyer programs will also be available, something the two carriers began offering customers in December 2014.

The joint venture is subject to applicable regulatory approvals in the United States and Canada.

The two airlines announced an interline agreement in 2011 and a codeshare agreement on flights within the United States and Canada back in 2012.
