Air Canada has entered into a codeshare deal with GOL Linhas Aereas Inteligentes of Brazil that will enable passengers of both airlines experience hassle-free flying between their networks.

The arrangement enhances an earlier interline agreement that allows passengers create a single reservation for flights on both airlines. Air Canada, under the codeshare agreement, will be able to include its code on GOL–operated flights.

The codeshare deal likewise includes a frequent flyer program agreement. Members of both airlines will get to earn and redeem miles on eligible flights operated by both the airlines. The agreement still needs to be approved by the Brazilian and Canadian regulators.

Earlier in the month, Air Canada announced it will launch non-stop flights between its Toronto Pearson hub and Atlantic City, NJ, beginning May 22 up to September 7, 2015. To be flown by Air Canada Express, operated by Jazz, the seasonal service will offer four return trips weekly.

The non-stop service to Atlantic City will operate via a 74-seat Bombardier Q-400 aircraft:

"The flights will be conveniently timed to link with Air Canada's extensive network for connections to and from the rest of Canada and beyond with customers eligible to accumulate and redeem Aeroplan miles," Benjamin Smith, President, Passenger Airlines, at Air Canada, said in a statement.
