Japan Airlines (JAL) will start to offer from June 01, 2009, new code share flights with fellow oneworld member Qantas (QF) which will connect Japan, via Singapore, to 3 destinations in Australia, namely Adelaide, Melbourne and Perth.
JAL and QF first started offering code share flights in April 1986. At present, JALways, a 100%-owned subsidiary of the JAL Group, provides one daily flight between Tokyo (Narita) and Sydney, as well as Brisbane. In addition to that, JAL has code share flights with Jetstar Airways which offer passengers a daily service on the Tokyo (Narita)-Cairns and Osaka (Kansai)-Gold Coast routes, and also for 5 days a week, service on the Gold Coast-Sydney route.
Operating two daily flights connecting Tokyo (Narita) and Singapore, JAL will extend its reach from the current 4, to 7 destinations in Australia by means of the new code share flights operated by QF, who flies from Singapore to Melbourne and Perth on a daily basis, and thrice a week to Adelaide.
Reservations for these code share flights will begin from May 20, 2009.
