Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Videos Thursday, 14 January 2010

Japan Airlines and Mexicana are expanding their codeshare partnership to cover new routes that will improve the connection between Japan and Mexico, using three mutual gateways in North America - Los Angeles, San Francisco and Vancouver.

From today, 14 January 2010, Japan Airlines will expand its services between Los Angeles and the Mexican city of Len/Bajo (Guanajuato) and between San Francisco and Mexico City by adding its "JL" code on flights operated by Mexicana. Concurrently, Mexicana will begin placing its "MX" indicator on JAL-operated round-trip flights between San Francisco and Tokyo (Narita).

The frequency of existing codeshare one-way flights from Tokyo (Narita) to Vancouver operated by JAL, and from Vancouver to Mexico City operated by MX, will also increase from 5 to 7 flights a week starting 18 January 2010 - when reservations and ticket sales will also commence.

JAL and Mexicana, both members of the oneworld alliance, inked their first bilateral agreement in 2005 before they joined the alliance in 2007 and 2009 respectively. The carriers can now market JAL operated flights from Tokyo (Narita) to Los Angeles, San Francisco and Vancouver, as well as connections on MX operated flights to and from five Mexican cities Guadalajara, Cancun, Los Cabos, Mexico City and the newly added Len/Bajo.
