Royal Jordanian, VIA Rail Canada conclude agreement enabling RJ passengers to land in Montreal and travel to Ottawa and Toronto
Amman, Oct. 4, 2012: Royal Jordanian (RJ) signed an agreement with VIA Rail Canada, Canada’s rail passenger service, whereby RJ may sell train tickets to its passengers wishing to continue their travel beyond the RJ destination in Canada — Montreal — to Toronto and Ottawa.
Royal Jordanian becomes thus VIA Rail Canada’s first code-share partner. According to the agreement, when an RJ passenger purchases his/her airline ticket from RJ, Royal Jordanian issues a ticket that holds one code for both means of transportation, air and rail. This ticket will show that the passenger has a VIA Rail Canada ticket.
This code-share ticket may be purchased through the Internet booking engine at www.rj.com or from any RJ sales offices and travel agents around the world.
RJ President/CEO, Amer Hadidi said: “We are proud to cooperate with a well-respected rail service company as VIA Rail Canada. The frequency and travel times of VIA's trains between Montreal and Toronto, and Montreal and Ottawa extend the quality of services and comfort experienced by RJ passengers to and from Amman. Through such partnerships, RJ aims at giving more convenient travel options to its passengers.”
Pierre Santoni, VIA Senior Director Domestic and International Sales, said: “We are excited to partner with Royal Jordanian to enable travelers to and from Ottawa and Toronto to take the VIA Rail trains to Montreal's Trudeau Airport and connect with Royal Jordanian flights to Amman and beyond in a seamless fashion. Royal Jordanian will become a highly regarded partner, making it easier to connect to other Canadian cities at an affordable cost.”
