Air Canada’s Codeshare Flights With United Could Simplify Some Cross-Border Travel

Air Canada and United are coordinating their schedules to offer more codeshare flights that could simplify cross-border travel. Instead of only having access to destinations offered by each individual carrier, you can now take flights with both in a single trip without having to buy multiple tickets. The process operates much like an STM transfer that allows for travel on both buses and trains and expands how far you can get.

The partnership between Air Canada and United will offer 38 new codeshare flights in the US and eight to major cities in Canada. Travelers will also be able to accrue rewards for the MileagePlus and Aeroplan loyalty programs during shared trips.

The specifics of just where the new codeshare flights will get you is still TBA, but some airline industry experts suspect the changes will streamline travel to cities that are often harder to reach.

The Austin Blogger Helping Women Travel Solo

When we sat down to speak with influencer and travel blogger Lindsay Mukaddam, she’d just landed in Croatia. After a bleary flight and a solid nap, Mukaddam labored to install a Zoom update on her Airbnb’s spotty Wi-Fi. Between the loading and buffering, we discussed rescheduling, but Mukaddam was joining friends on a weeklong boat trip up the coastline, and the open sea promised even worse download speed. Through divine providence (or a well-placed kick to the router), the clouds parted, and Mukaddam appeared on screen, grainy yet visible at last.

Such is life for the world traveler. For half a decade, Lindsay Mukaddam has been sharing her adventures under the multiplatform handle One Girl Wandering, amassing nearly 200,000 followers along the way. From her comprehensive travel guides to organized group trips with her fans, Mukaddam hopes to convey a core message: you don’t have to wait on others
