TOKYO June 27, 2012: Japan Airlines (JAL) announced today the launch of a new codeshare cooperation with NIKI Luftfahrt GmbH (NIKI) - a subsidiary of fellow oneworld alliance member airberlin. Starting from July 1, 2012, JAL’s flight indicator will be placed on NIKI’s six-weekly service connecting Frankfurt and Vienna International Airport. Reservations and sales for the codeshare flight begin June 27, 2012.
Founded in 2003, NIKI is an airline based in Vienna - the capital of Austria, operating flights throughout Europe with a fleet of more than 20 Airbus and Embraer aircraft. The latest arrangement with NIKI further strengthens JAL’s codeshare partnership with the airberlin Group which started in February this year. Via its daily service between Tokyo and Frankfurt, JAL is now able to offer customers even more options for their travel to Europe using codeshare flights between the German city and Vienna with NIKI, Berlin with airberlin, Helsinki with Finnair and Madrid with Iberia.
JAL will continue strengthening its alliance and bilateral relationships with quality partner airlines, to provide customers with greater choice and convenience.
