Japan Airlines (JAL) and Qantas Airways, both members of oneworld airline alliance, have reached an agreement to expand their partnership. From October 1, 2010, JAL will codeshare with Qantas on flights operated by the latter between Singapore and Brisbane.
With the enhanced agreement with partner airline Qantas, JAL will retain Brisbane in its international network as it suspends its direct flights between Tokyo, Narita and Brisbane from September 30, 2010 after 22 years of operations.
JAL and Qantas first started to cooperate and offer codeshare flights in April 1986. At present, JAL markets flights operated by Qantas from Singapore to Adelaide, Melbourne and Perth. JAL will continue to serve and support valuable customers traveling between Australia and Japan for leisure or for work with these codeshare arrangements and two daily flights connecting Tokyo and Singapore.
Reservations and ticket purchase for this codeshare flight begins tomorrow.
