Japan Airlines is to start offering codeshare
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 codeshare flights will internationalize
JAL's 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 prefecture's
new airport opens its doors this June.
JAL and KAL entered
their first codeshare 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.
