Japan Airlines and Dubai-based Emirates Airline
are to expand their codeshare partnership between Japan and Dubai.
JAL will start placing its JL flight indicator on EK-operated
flights between Tokyo (Narita) and Dubai from 28 March 2010, when
EK will launch the new direct service to Narita, flying five times
Both airlines have been offering codeshare
services on the Osaka (Kansai) = Dubai route since 2002. By
further strengthening their partnership through the new connection
between Tokyo and Dubai, both airlines can build a more extensive
network to increase customer convenience and better facilitate
business and tourist travel to the Middle East from Japan.
In addition to the codeshare flights, JAL and EK
also linked their frequent flyer programs (FFP) in October 2002,
enabling members of the JAL Mileage Bank (JMB) and Emirates'
Skywards FFP to earn miles on each other's flights.
Reservations and ticket purchase for the new
codeshare service start today.
