JAL and Korean Air Expand Code-share Flights

 

Tokyo January 20: JAL has reached an agreement with Korean Air (KAL) to expand their code-share flights between Japan and Korea.

As a result, from March 27, they will launch code share flights between the new Chubu International Airport at Nagoya, Japan, and Pusan.

The two airlines are currently operating individually between Nagoya and Pusan out of Nagoyas Komaki Airport. From February 17, they will switch flights on the Nagoya-Pusan route to the new Chubu International Airport, which opens on February 17. By turning these Nagoya-Pusan flights into code share flights in March, customers of both airlines will be able to enjoy greater convenience.

Since August 1, 2004, JAL and KAL have been operating code share flights between Seoul and the cities of Komatsu, Niigata and Sapporo in Japan. As a result of the new agreement, code share flights by the two airlines will be increased to 64 weekly flights on four routes from 36 weekly flights on three routes.

JAL and KAL hope to contribute to the exchanges of peoples, goods and culture through the expansion of their networks between Japan and Korea.

Summary of the new code share flight plan:
