Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Videos Tuesday, 27 September 2011

Japan Airlines and China Eastern Airlines have reached an agreement to expand their codeshare partnership to include their entire Sino-Japan networks.

Starting from 8 October 2011, the airlines will place their respective flight designators JL and MU on every flight operated by the other, between cities in China and Japan.

The deeper relationship will add Yantai to JAL's network of 15 Chinese cities, and Shizuoka, Okayama and Nagasaki to China Eastern's existing network of 12 Japanese cities.

The extension of the codeshare scheme to cover the entire China-Japan network will make it easier for customers to understand and more conveniently select from the combined operations of both carriers' 386 weekly flights on 42 routes between the two countries.

Both airlines have also been offering a reciprocal frequent flyer program since 1 February 2008.

Reservations and sales for the new codeshare flights start today, 27 September 2011.
