JAL Code Shares on Tokyo - Nanjing Route Operated By China Eastern Airlines

Tokyo December 11, 2007: From December 20, 2007, Japan Airlines (JAL) will code share on flights operated by China Eastern Airlines (MU) between Tokyo (Narita) and Nanjing. 
 

On December 20, the Chinese carrier will inaugurate a twice-weekly service between the two cities with departures on Thursday and Sunday. The new code share agreement will enable JAL to place its “JL" designator on the newly launched flights. Tickets for the code share go on sale today. 
 

JAL and China Eastern have been code share partners since September 2002. 
 

Located by the Yangtze River, Nanjing is the capital of China’s Jiangsu Province. It is one of the Great Ancient Capitals of China as it has served as the capital of ten dynasties. Abundant in history and surrounded by great natural beauty, the modern city has a population of over 6 million and a strong industrial base. It has therefore become a popular place for Japanese companies to set up businesses in China.
 

From the point of customer convenience and profitability, JAL is expanding flight frequency between Japan and the high growth market of China and offers the largest network between the two countries. By December 20, JAL’s Japan-China network will have expanded to serve 13 cities in China on 31 routes with a total of 296 flights per week including code shares. Of these flights JAL operates 182 flights per week to 10 destinations in China.
