Japan Airlines and Cathay Pacific, both members of the oneworld airline alliance, have entered into an agreement to expand their codeshare partnership, subject to government approval, to include all flights operated by both carriers between Japan and Hong Kong from this fall.

At present, JAL places its JL' flight indicator on three daily CX-operated flights that connect Osaka, Nagoya and Fukuoka with Hong Kong. From 31 October 2010 however, in addition to codesharing on the newly-established Hong Kong - Haneda flights, both airlines will also begin to market each other's flights linking Hong Kong with Narita and Sapporo, increasing the number of codeshare flights to 2 per day operated by JAL, and 16 per day operated by CX.

Commenting on the strengthened relationship between the two carriers, Japan Airlines President and Chief Operating Officer Masaru Onishi said, "This is a favorable and appropriate time for us to extend our codeshare agreement. I am certain this development in our alliance will complement the convenience of flying to and from Haneda Airport, and oneworld customers in this region of growth will have more travel solutions than ever before as they continue to enjoy the high standards of both of our services."

Cathay Pacific Director Sales and Marketing, Rupert Hogg, added, "This new agreement comes at a perfect time as we will be operating a twice-daily service to Haneda and increasing frequencies to Tokyo to seven daily from 31 October. The codeshare flights with Japan Airlines will provide customers with even more choice."
