DSC_0163Japan Airlines announced that Iberia, the flag carrier of Spain, will become a part of the joint business venture between the Japanese carrier, British Airways, and Finnair on October 18.

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 has now received.

Iberia is set to begin operating a new route between Tokyo Narita and Madrid, Spain, also on October 18 this year.

“We are very happy to launch our non-stop flights to Japan as part of this joint business. We want to offer our customers more and better travel options and this will help us do so. We are also glad to contribute to the strength of the joint business and the oneworld alliance,” said Luis Gallego, Iberia’s CEO.

Japan Airlines first began a joint business arrangement with British Airways in October 2012. Finnair later joined the partnership in April 2014.

All four carriers are members of the oneworld alliance.
