The codeshare announcement comes after WestJet said all of its long-haul flying will be based at Calgary.

WestJet will place its code on two Korean Air routes from Canada, marking the first time the WS code will be on an Asian airline’s transpacific flights.
WestJet, Canada’s second largest airline, will place its code on Korean’s flights to Seoul Incheon (ICN) from both Toronto Pearson (YYZ) and Vancouver (YVR). 
“It’s incredibly exciting for WestJet to codeshare on flights across the Pacific to Asia for the first time,” WestJet CCO John Weatherhill said in a statement.
