A new alliance between WestJet Airlines Ltd. and Southwest Airlines Co. could focus on three cities in Canada and three in the United States. "Based on the existing route systems of both companies, code-share service will likely be offered on domestic segments operated to/from Las Vegas, Orlando and Tampa, connecting to WestJet transborder flights to/from Calgary, Toronto or Vancouver," Southwest said in its regulatory filing. Dallas-based Southwest said it has yet to finalize itineraries with Calgary-based WestJet, but they could start jointly marketing services later this year. Last July, the two carriers announced plans for a code-sharing arrangement that would involve a partnership on operations such as connecting flights, baggage handling and electronic ticketing. WJA (TSX) fell 22 cents to $12.73. LUV (NYSE) fell 28 cents (U.S.) to $6.75.
