Passengers traveling with Japan Airlines departing from Terminal 3 at London's Heathrow Airport, will from December 14, 2009, be able to use the "Galleries First" and "Galleries Club" lounges of oneworld partner airline, British Airways (BA).

Based on the same concept as the exclusive BA lounges in the newly opened Terminal 5, Galleries First and Galleries Club in Terminal 3 are also located near the shopping area and departure gates, and offer many amenities such as shower rooms, a well-equipped business center, and the use of wireless internet connection. JAL Global Club members, eligible passengers and eligible traveling companions departing on Japan Airlines that day, can use the lounges before boarding.

Japan Airlines codeshares with British Airways to link Japan, via London Heathrow, to 5 cities in the United Kingdom such as Manchester and Edinburgh, as well as 5 other cities - Hamburg, Lisbon, Stuttgart, Vienna and Zurich, in Europe.

Passengers can expect smoother transfers now that operations of all oneworld alliance members serving London Heathrow, including JAL, have been consolidated to Terminals 3 and 5 - the airport's latest passenger terminal that is used exclusively by BA. Terminal 3 is the closest in proximity to 5 and will be connected by the latest baggage system, which allows for speedier and more efficient transfers of baggage, providing enhanced convenience for all valued customers of oneworld.

JAL will cease operations of its First Class Lounge and executive class Sakura Lounge at London Heathrow from December 14, 2009, after which passengers can continue to enjoy quality services at the BA lounges. Changes have also been made to airport lounges used in other European destinations, namely Milan, Moscow and Paris, and in Frankfurt where the JAL lounge was renovated to emulate the revamped lounge in Tokyo's Narita International Airport.
