JAL Code Shares with Korean Air on Shizuoka-Incheon Route

Tokyo, May 15, 2009: Japan Airlines (JAL) will start offering code share flights between Shizuoka and Seoul (Incheon) operated by Korean Air (KAL) starting June 4, 2009, the first day of operation of the new Shizuoka Airport.

 

The new code share flights will internationalize JALs network out from Shizuoka, where the carrier will already be operating three daily return flights between Shizuoka and Fukuoka, and one daily between Shizuoka and Sapporo when the prefectures new airport opens its doors this June.

 

JAL and KAL entered their first code share partnership in August 2004 with the objective of mutual development on the Japan-Korea network. Through this new agreement to include the Shizuoka-Seoul (Incheon) route, passengers traveling between the two countries, either for business or for leisure, can now expect greater convenience provided by the expanded network to 16 routes and 165 return flights a week.

 

Reservations and sales of tickets for the code share flights start today.
