DSC_0053All Nippon Airways and Alitalia announced what the two termed a “commercial partnership.”

The agreement includes a codeshare agreement under which ANA will place its codes on Alitalia flights from Tokyo’s Narita Airport to Milan and Rome as well as on continuing service to Bologna, Florence, Milan, Naples, Turin, and Venice, while Alitalia will place its code on five ANA domestic flights from Narita to Fukuoka, Okinawa, Osaka, Sapporo, and Sendai.

The two carriers will also cooperate on frequent-flyer programs, including reciprocal mileage accrual and redemption on codeshare flights.

Speaking of a “bridge between Japan and Italy,” the two airlines said that the deal will benefit customers by providing “greater choice and flexibility.”

Codeshare tickets will go on sale in September for flights beginning October 28, 2018, at which time the two airlines will begin their frequent-flyer program cooperation.

The two airlines said they plan to add additional codeshare routes in the near future.
