Japan Airlines and Emirates to Start Tokyo=Dubai Code Share Flights

Tokyo, February 24, 2010: Japan Airlines (JAL) and Dubai-based Emirates Airline (EK) reached an agreement to expand their code share partnership between Japan and Dubai. JAL will start placing its “JL” flight indicator on EK-operated flights between Tokyo (Narita) and Dubai from March 28, 2010, when EK will launch the new direct service to Narita, flying five times a week.

Both airlines have been offering code share services on the Osaka (Kansai) = Dubai route since 2002. By further strengthening their partnership through the new connection between Tokyo and Dubai, both airlines can build a more extensive network to increase customer convenience and better facilitate business and tourist travel to the Middle East from Japan.

In addition to the code share flights, JAL and EK also linked their frequent flyer programs (FFP) in October 2002, enabling members of the JAL Mileage Bank (JMB) and Emirates’ Skywards FFP to earn miles on each other’s flights.

Reservations and ticket purchase for the new code share service start tomorrow.

NEW: Tokyo (Narita) = Dubai flight schedule from March 28, 2010.
