Japan Airlines and Uber Sign Strategic Partnership Agreement
Uber service available to travelers within Japan via JAL`s App; partnership include plans to implement Uber services at international destinations
Japan Airlines has been at the forefront of the MaaS (Mobility as a Service) movement in Japan, enabling travelers to get from one point to another in a seamless fashion. In order to strengthen this movement, JAL has partnered with Uber Technologies, Inc. to offer select services via the carrier`s app platform, starting April 1, 2021.
As part of the collaboration, the Uber icon will be displayed on the JAL app, allowing passengers to request Uber services from the arrival airport for a ride or to request food delivery services at their destination. The initial service will be offered at local destinations based in Japan and in the near future, the companies plan to unveil services when travelers visit North America and/or Hawaii.
Uber, with its world`s largest rideshare (request, ride, and payment) and food delivery services provided across more than 10,000 cities in 71 countries around the world, will work together with JAL to provide seamless transportation services to their mutual customers. Through this partnership, JAL and Uber aim to create a safe and comfortable travel experience during and after the COVID-19 era.
