JAL and Korean Air to Expand Codeshare Agreement
Japan Airlines and Korean Air announced they will increase the number of flights covered by their existing codeshare agreement on April 22. The agreement will cover all flights between South Korea and Japan operated by Korean Air.
The two airlines first began their codeshare agreement in August 2004. The original agreement covered three routes, from Seoul to the cities of Komatsu, Niigata, and Sapporo, Japan.
The expansion will add eight additional routes between South Korea and Japan to the existing codeshare agreement.
The new codeshare flights will include service between Seoul’s Incheon International Airport and the Japanese cities of Aomori, Akita, Haneda, Oita, and Okayama. The expanded codeshare flights will also include service between Busan, South Korea and Fukuoka, Japan, as well as service between Jeju, South Korea and Nagoya, Japan. In addition, Korean Air’s service between Busan and Sapporo, Japan will become part of the airlines’ codeshare agreement on April 26.
