With Delta and WestJet eyeing joint venture, are United and Air Canada next? 

Travel Weekly reports on effort by Delta and low-cost carrier WestJet to obtain permission to operate an antitrust-immune joint venture on flights between the US and Canada could spur United Airlines and Air Canada into action on their dormant joint-venture partnership.

This summer, Delta and WestJet will offer a combined 26 per cent of the US-Canada transborder aviation market capacity, according to the air travel intelligence company OAG. 

That total will fall well short of Air Canada, which will offer 46 per cent of the US to Canada market capacity. Air Canada’s codeshare partner, United, meanwhile, will offer 12 per cent of USto Canada capacity.
