JAL, BA & Finnair start joint flights between Europe & Japan

Postby sn26567 on 26 Mar 2014, 18:25

Japan Airlines, British Airways and Finnair begin joint business on flights between Europe and Japan

Japan Airlines and fellow oneworld alliance members British Airways and Finnair will start their planned joint business between Europe and Japan starting on April 1, 2014.

The joint business means that the three airlines will share revenue and cooperate on scheduling and pricing between Japan and Europe, providing customers with more flexible routing options and an attractive range of fares.

Last October Japanese regulators gave approval to the airlines’ plans to include Finnair in the joint business established in 2012 by British Airways and Japan Airlines, and in February the three airlines began selling joint fares on select routes for travel after April 1.

The joint business opens up all three airlines’ networks between Japan and Europe and allows the airline partners to cooperate on expanding their presence in this growing and important market. The agreement also strengthens the oneworld alliance and enables it to compete more effectively around the world with other global alliances.

Customer benefits of the joint business will include:
• The ability to mix and match flights on all three carriers for the most convenient scheduling and best pricing
• Online booking capability and check-in with any of the three airlines, regardless of which is being flown
• Integrated customer support across the three airlines
• Greater connectivity on all three airlines in case of disruption

Currently, Finnair flies daily from Helsinki to Tokyo and daily in summer (five times per week in the winter) to Osaka and Nagoya, connecting Japan to more than 50 Finnair destinations in Europe. Japan Airlines also operates daily from Tokyo to Helsinki, Frankfurt, Paris and London, while British Airways operates daily flights (from April 9) from London to both Narita and Haneda airports in Tokyo.

Since the authorities gave the green light for us to enter this joint business, we have worked very hard with our new partners to establish a well-functioning cooperation,” says Finnair CEO Pekka Vauramo. “Together, the three of us will constitute the single largest player in Europe-Japan traffic, offering an extremely competitive customer proposition in this vital market.”

The start of three carriers’ joint business between Europe and Japan is one of the great milestones in our Mid-Term Management Plan,” says President of JAL Yoshiharu Ueki. “Tighter cooperation with our oneworld partners, British Airways and Finnair, will provide more seamless, consistent services and more travel choices for our customers.”

Keith Williams, British Airways’ Executive Chairman said: “Finnair’s inclusion in the joint business with British Airways and Japan Airlines will open up a whole new world of opportunity for customers travelling between Japan and Europe. With an expanded range of routes, special fares and greater rewards for frequent flyers, it has never been a better time to plan your journey between east and west.”

Japan approves Finnair JV with JAL and British Airways

Postby sn26567 on 16 Oct 2013, 14:41

Japan approves Finnair’s inclusion in the joint business between Japan Airlines and British Airways

Japan’s Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism (MLIT) has today granted anti-trust immunity to a joint business between Japan Airlines, Finnair and British Airways. This paves the way for Finnair to join the existing joint business between Japan Airlines and British Airways. The agreement will allow all three airlines to cooperate commercially on flights between Europe and Japan.

The new joint business is expected to be launched next spring. The addition of Finnair will further enhance customer benefits by providing better links between the EU and Japan, with more flight choices and enhanced frequent flyer benefits. In addition, this new joint business will allow the three airlines to cooperate on expanding their presence within, to and from this important and growing market.

The revenue-sharing agreement will strengthen the oneworld® alliance and enable it to compete more effectively around the world with other global alliances.

President of JAL, Yoshiharu Ueki, said “We would like to thank the regulator for approving our application for ATI with Finnair joining Japan Airlines and British Airways in our current joint business between Europe and Japan.”

Amid the evolving Japanese aviation industry, the ATI will enable us to build a stronger value-creating relationship with British Airways and Finnair that can further benefit our customers as well as our business.”

Keith Williams, chief executive of British Airways said, “Today’s decision by the MLIT will benefit the customers of all three airlines by allowing us to explore ways to improve the connections between East and West.”

Pekka Vauramo, CEO of Finnair, said, "We are glad we are now one step closer to starting the cooperation with JAL and British Airways to provide our customers with better connections between the EU and Japan."

Finnair Seeks Approval to Join Current British Airways and Japan Airlines Joint Business Agreement on Flighs Between Japan and Europe

The first step has been taken to enable Finnair to join British Airways and Japan Airlines (JAL) in their successful joint business on flights between Europe and Japan. The three airlines intend to cooperate commercially by sharing revenue and by coordinating flight schedules and fares in order to offer greater benefits to customers travelling between Europe and Japan.

The new joint business arrangement is subject to regulatory approvals.

The addition of Finnair to the joint business will further enhance these customer benefits and allow the three airlines to cooperate on expanding their presence within and to and from this important market.

"We are pleased to have taken one giant leap to include our oneworld partner Finnair in our joint business with British Airways,” said Yoshiharu Ueki, President of Japan Airlines. “With the strengthened partnership, we can improve our efficiencies to provide the travelling public between Europe and Japan with a more comprehensive network.

Keith Williams, chief executive of British Airways said, “The inclusion of Finnair in the joint business will strengthen the ties between East and West in this vital and growing market.”

Pekka Vauramo, CEO of Finnair, conveyed, "We are delighted to deepen our cooperation with our oneworld partners JAL and British Airways, which are both leading carriers in their home markets. Japan is one of Finnair's core markets and we look forward to the benefits this strategic joint business agreement will bring to our customers and other stakeholders."
