Japan Airlines and Aeroflot said Monday that the two had signed a memorandum of understanding that will lead to various partnerships.

The move follows changes in visa requirements for Japanese and Russian citizens, making travel between the two countries easier.

The two airlines plan a codeshare partnership for flights between Japan and Russia as well as for domestic flights in both countries. The first stage of the codeshare would be implemented after fiscal year 2018, the airlines said in a statement.

Aeroflot and JAL are also discussing linking their frequent flyer programs and relocating within various airports to facilitate connections. They also said that a joint business venture is being considered “in the future.”

“We believe that by expanding our partnership with JAL for both direct and transit traffic we will be able to further develop this market by providing more opportunities for our passengers,” said Giorgio Callegari, Aeroflot’s deputy CEO for strategy and alliances.
