ACTA commends AirCanada and WestJet for cutting ties with Hopper after "secret fares" comments

JIM BYERS, Travel Pulse Canada

Canada’s two biggest airlines have told TravelPulse Canada that they do not offer “secret fares.”

“We do not do secret fares,” said WestJet Vice President Sales and Distribution Lyell Farquharson. “A top retailer can market our seat sales as fits their business model,” he said, but that doesn’t mean WestJet offers hidden deals.

Duncan Bureau of Air Canada told TravelPulse Canada the same thing.

"We do not have secret fares with Hopper that disadvantage other distribution partners," said Bureau, Vice President Global Sales.
