According to the agreement, Kalitta Air will operate 3 codeshare flights per week between Tokyo-Narita and Chicago O’Hare airport, starting August 1, 2019. In recent years, JAL has chartered freighter flights based on seasonal demand, but through this codeshare arrangement with Kalitta Air, the carrier will now offer scheduled freighter services between Asia and North America.

Together with Kalitta Air, JAL will strive to deliver a more comprehensive freighter network and provide convenient options for the company`s valued customers.
