JAL adds code sharing routes with China Eastern


On March 30, Japan Airlines (JAL) started a code sharing agreement on six additional routes operated by China Eastern Airlines between China and Japan. The new code share agreement will enable JAL to place its “JL" designator on China Eastern Airlines’ flights operating between Shanghai-Kagoshima, Shanghai-Matsuyama, Shanghai-Niigata, Shanghai-Okinawa (Naha) Qingdao-Fukuoka, and Qingdao-Nagoya (Chubu). With this code share expansion, JAL’s Japan-China network will serve 13 cities in China on 36 routes with a total of 318 flights per week. JAL operates some 180 of these flights per week to 10 airports in China. From the point of view of customer convenience, JAL is expanding flight frequency between Japan and the high growth market of China, and offers the largest network between the two countries. JAL and China Eastern have been code share partners since September 2002. The new agreement increases to 15 the number of routes which the airlines code share. Japan Airlines also inaugurated a reciprocal frequent flyer program agreement with China Eastern Airlines on February 1, 2008. Members of JAL’s frequent flyer program, JAL Mileage Bank, can now accumulate mileage when traveling on China Eastern Airlines flights and redeem award tickets on China Eastern Airlines flights.
