Iberia Joins Joint Business Venture with JAL, BA, Finnair
Spanish airline Iberia announced that it is now part of the joint business venture between Japan Airlines, British Airways, and Finnair, with the launch of thrice-weekly flights between Tokyo Narita and Madrid.
All four airlines are members of the oneworld alliance.
Iberia’s addition to the joint business venture was first announced in May, pending approval from Japan’s Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport, and Tourism, which it received in August.
The four carriers will share revenue and cooperate on flight schedules and prices between Japan and Europe. Along with the new Tokyo-Narita flights, other flights between Europe and Japan in the joint venture include Finnair’s service from Helsinki to Tokyo Narita, Osaka, Nagoya, and Fukuoka; British Airways’ flights from London Heathrow to Tokyo Narita and Tokyo Haneda; and Japan Airlines’ routes from Tokyo Narita and Tokyo Haneda to Paris, Tokyo Haneda to London, and Narita to Frankfurt and Helsinki.
