The companies also plan for Air Canada to make an equity investment in GetThere.com.
Under the letter of intent, GetThere.com will provide its ITN FlightRez(tm) online booking technology for the Air Canada site.
This technology is currently used to enable online booking for United Airlines, All Nippon Airways, National Airlines and Lauda Air. GetThere.com recently announced relationships with Northwest Airlines and America West Airlines.
"We believe this alliance will position us to take advantage of GetThere.com's existing technology, as well as to provide input to drive Air Canada's expanding Internet services," said Lise Fournel, senior vice president, Commercial at Air Canada.
