Joint Business Venture Between Finnair, BA, JAL to Begin April 1
Finnair, British Airways, and Japan Airlines announced that they will officially begin joint business venture flights on April 1. The arrangement, which was approved by Japanese regulators last October, will allow the carriers to share revenue, as well as coordinate schedules and fares on flights between Europe and Japan.
Tickets for the joint business venture flights are now available for purchase.
Currently, Finnair offers daily service between Helsinki and Tokyo, as well as Helsinki-Osaka and Helsinki-Nagoya service five times a week. The latter two routes will become daily during the summer.
Also beginning this summer, British Airways will offer daily flights between London and both Tokyo Haneda and Narita.
British Airways and Japan Airlines began their joint business venture last October. Last July, Japan Airlines began daily, nonstop flights between Tokyo Narita and Helsinki.
All three airlines are members of the oneworld alliance.
