JAPAN AIRLINES AND AMERICAN AIRLINES STRENGTHEN CARGO RELATIONSHIP THROUGH CLOSER COOPERATION

 

Airlines to Utilize Worldwide Networks to Offer Customers More Routing Choices and Increased Cargo Capacity Between Asia and the Americas

 

TOKYO and FORT WORTH, Texas - Japan Airlines (JAL) and American Airlines (American) have embarked on a closer cooperation aimed at strengthening international cargo operations for the two airlines. Their agreement, concluded in April this year, provides cargo customers with more routing choices, new destinations, and increased cargo capacity by more effectively utilizing the combined worldwide network of both airlines, covering some 300 distinct destinations worldwide, while maximizing the value of their combined routes between Asia, the United States, and Latin America.

 

The two airlines have begun using Los Angeles, Chicago, Dallas/Fort Worth, New York and Honolulu as key transfer points for cargo traffic in the United States and Tokyo, Osaka and Nagoya as transfer points in Japan. The agreement enhances the significance of Honolulu as an important transfer point for cargo between Asia and the Americas. The tighter cargo relationship is expected to enable both airlines to provide their respective customers with additional value, while maximizing the utilization of cargo capacity for both airlines.

 

In addition, new synergies between the carriers’ express products will now provide seamless transfer of express shipments between the airlines. Shipments which do not exceed 100kg will now receive immediate confirmation of space on both airlines, when customers select JAL’s J-PRIORITY and American’s EXPEDITESM product for the routing.

 

The joint business agreement between JAL and American which began April 1, 2011, is expected to benefit customers on many levels, including cargo. Both airlines continue to explore ways in which closer cooperation can bring increased benefit to customers.
