Japan Airlines and Emirates Expand Codeshare

Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Videos Thursday, 25 February 2010

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 a week.

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.
