JAL & Korean Air to Expand Code Share Partnership

Tokyo, Thursday March 13, 2006: Japan Airlines (JAL) and Korean Air (KAL) have agreed to expand their code share partnership from March 26, 2006. As a result, the total number of code share routes operated by the two airlines will increase from 7 routes and 104 flights per week to 9 routes and 266 flights per week (on a one-way basis).

In addition to existing code share agreements, the carriers will launch extra code share flights between Tokyo, Osaka (Kansai), Nagoya and Seoul. On a one-way basis, the two airlines will code share on an additional 84 flights per week on the Narita - Seoul route, 56 flights per week on the Kansai - Seoul route, and 28 flights per week on the Nagoya (Chubu) - Seoul route. (Subject to government approval).

By strengthening their code sharing partnership, JAL, Asia's largest airline group, and Korean Air, the biggest Korean airline, are building an extensive network to increase customer convenience.


On the four flights per week code share service between Komatsu and Seoul, KAL operated aircraft will replace JAL aircraft and, as already announced, JAL will suspend its three flights per week Hiroshima - Seoul service on March 24, 2006.

By the end of March 2006, JAL's Korea network, including code share flights, will serve the cities of Seoul and Busan, linking eight cities in Japan to Korea.

Korean Air and JAL started code share operations on August 1, 2004 on routes between Komatsu, Niigata, Sapporo and Seoul. Nagoya-Busan code share flights started on March 27, 2005 followed by Hiroshima and Kagoshima=Seoul flights on August 2, and Fukuoka=Seoul on October 3, 2005.
