|AIR CANADA & AER LINGUS SIGN INTERLINE AGREEMENT|
Air Canada and Aer Lingus announced that they have signed an interline agreement. The agreement is effective immediately and is a preliminary step toward a full code sharing relationship expected to be finalized next year between the Canadian and Irish flag carriers. |
As a result of the agreement, customers flying Air Canada and Aer Lingus are now able to use a single electronic ticket. The agreement enables customers to use both carriers' check-in kiosks and to through-check their baggage to final destination.
Currently, Air Canada flies Toronto-Dublin non-stop daily during the summer, from June until Oct. 13, and customers can connect through London-Heathrow, where Air Canada operates from eight Canadian gateways into Heathrow, with 12 daily flights in summer and nine in winter. Aer Lingus operates a total of 23 flights daily from London Heathrow to Dublin, Belfast, Cork and Shannon.
