Customers of one Canadian airline will soon be able to enjoy McDonald’s coffee in the air.

Gregg Saretsky, CEO of WestJet, announced Monday that the airline partnered with McDonald’s Canada to begin serving McCafé beverages on more than 650 daily flights. McDonald’s beat bids from Tim Hortons and Starbucks Canada to supply WestJet’s coffee.

“The collaboration between our two caring brands is a perfect pairing, as McCafé’s values are reflected in WestJet’s commitment to offer an unmatched guest experience,” Saretsky said in a release.
