Japan Airlines Increases Codeshare Flights with Cathay Pacific Airways

Tokyo, September 17, 2010: Japan Airlines (JAL) and Cathay Pacific Airways (CX), both members of the quality airline alliance oneworld(R), have entered into an agreement to expand their codeshare partnership, subject to government approval, to include all flights operated by both carriers between Japan and Hong Kong from this fall.

 

At present, JAL places its ‘JL’ flight indicator on three daily CX-operated flights that connect Osaka, Nagoya and Fukuoka with Hong Kong. From October 31, 2010 however, in addition to codesharing on the newly-established Hong Kong = Haneda flights, both airlines will also begin to market each other’s flights linking Hong Kong with Narita and Sapporo, increasing the number of codeshare flights to 2 per day operated by JAL, and 16 per day operated by CX.

 

Commenting on the strengthened relationship between the two oneworld carriers, Japan AirlinesPresident and Chief Operating Officer Masaru Onishi said: “This is a favorable and appropriate time for us to extend our codeshare agreement. I am certain this development in our alliance will complement the convenience of flying to and from Haneda Airport, and oneworld customers in this region of growth will have more travel solutions than ever before as they continue to enjoy the high standards of both of our services.”

 

Cathay Pacific Chief Executive Tony Tyler said: “Japan Airlines is one of our long-term code-share partners and we are pleased we are able to expand our cooperation with them in one of our major markets in Asia.”

 “This new agreement comes at a perfect time as we will be operating a twice-daily service to Haneda and increasing frequencies to Tokyo to seven daily from 31 October.  The code-share flights with Japan Airlines will provide customers with even more choice,” said Cathay Pacific Director Sales and Marketing Rupert Hogg.

 

Commencement of reservations and ticket purchase of the new codeshare flights will be announced as soon as it is decided.

 

Japan Airlines and Cathay Pacific will continue to explore possible codeshare arrangements beyond their Japan=Hong Kong routes so that they may further enhance the convenience and travel options of oneworld customers in Asia in the near future.
