Japan Airlines announced plans to relocate its Moscow operations to Sheremetyevo International Airport next year.

The move comes as a result of an expansion of its partnership with Aeroflot Russian Airlines, whose hub is at Sheremetyevo.  The shift will allow easier connections by passengers arriving on JAL flights with Aeroflot’s extensive network in Russia.

Once the airline relocates next year, it will launch a codeshare partnership with Aeroflot.

Founded in 1923, Aeroflot is the Russian flag carrier and the largest airline in the Russian Federation. It is a member of the SkyTeam alliance and serves 146 destinations.

Japan Airlines, which was founded in 1961, has operated flights to Moscow since 1967. It is a member of the oneworld alliance.
