Bangkok Airways (PG) and Japan Airlines (JAL) are set to commence codesharing on selected flights between three airports in Japan and Bangkok operated by JAL, as well as between Bangkok and four points within the region on PG, effective from 15 November 2012.

The new partnership will enable customers of both Japan Airlines and Bangkok Airways travelling from Tokyo’s Haneda and Narita airports, and Osaka (Kansai), a smoother transit through Bangkok’s Suvarnabhumi Airport and onward to Mumbai, Koh Samui, Phuket and Chiang Mai, and vice versa.

PG and JAL have also agreed on a reciprocal mileage tie-up that will enable Bangkok Airways’ FlyerBonus members to redeem award tickets on either airline for departures on or after 15 November 2012.

Reservations, sales and redemption for the codeshare flights and award tickets started, today, 8 November 2012.

Mr. Peter Wiesner, Bangkok Airway's Senior Vice President - Network management said, "This new partnership will offer better flight connectivity for passengers travelling from long-haul routes with Japan Airlines to Bangkok for their onward journey to Mumbai. Moreover, Thailand’s key destinations namely Koh Samui, Phuket and Chiang Mai always have great potentials which attract a large number of tourists, especially Japanese. Therefore, we believe this partnership will offer a unique service for Japan Airlines passengers and will strengthen Bangkok Airways’ extensive network as well as boosting tourism in Asia."
