Winair, KLM Planning Codeshare Agreement

Caribbean air carrier Winair is planning to implement a codeshare agreement with Dutch airline KLM, the company announced this week.

Implementation of the codeshare agreement is targeted for a 2017 debut.

That would give customers the ability to book combined Winair-KLM iitineraries on a single ticket.

”WINAIR currently enjoys a interline with KLM, one of the world’s premiere carriers, thru expansion of this agreement to a code share agreement both WINAIR and KLM will operate flights throughout each other’s route network offering greater benefits to our mutual customers, improving connectivity, adding destinations, pricing and ease of travel for customers traveling to and from the Caribbean, Europe and beyond,” said Michael Cleaver, president and CEO of Winair.

The agreement could prove a boost for European travelers looking to reach harder-to-access destinations like Dominica, Saba and St. Eustastius, among others.

“Once code share is attained this will greatly enhance service each airline offers to our customers, including seamless travel, additional options in travel plans and will offer greater value to our mutual customers,” the company said in a statement.
