JAL Code Shares with Korean Air on Shizuoka-Incheon Route


Japan Airlines (JAL) will start offering code share flights between Shizuoka and Seoul (Incheon) operated by Korean Air (KAL) starting June 4, 2009, the first day of operation of the new Shizuoka Airport.
The new code share flights will internationalize JAL’s network out from Shizuoka, where the carrier will already be operating three daily return flights between Shizuoka and Fukuoka, and one daily between Shizuoka and Sapporo when the prefecture’s new airport opens its doors this June.JAL and KAL entered their first code share partnership in August 2004 with the objective of mutual development on the Japan-Korea network. Through this new agreement to include the Shizuoka-Seoul (Incheon) route, passengers traveling between the two countries, either for business or for leisure, can now expect greater convenience provided by the expanded network to 16 routes and 165 return flights a week.

Meanwhile JAL announced that the company will relocate its check-in counters and office at Charles de Gaulle (CDG) Airport in Paris from Terminal 2F to Terminal 2E from June 17, 2009.

After the move into CDG Airport’s most recently renewed terminal that is decked with the latest facilities, passengers can look forward to checking-in at an island in the terminal that has been designated especially to JAL. The spacious terminal with roomier gate areas and other common facilities is certain to provide greater comfort and convenience to passengers, particularly those in transit and who have tight connections to another flight.

The revamped terminal also boasts of a larger common lounge, increasing in space from 820 m2 to 2147 m2, and which comes fully furnished with a business center, shower rooms, and wireless LAN connections. One travel companion of each eligible passenger is also welcome to enjoy the facilities at no additional charge.
With its current offering of 32 flights (including codeshare flights) a week between Japan and Paris, JAL connects Japan via Paris, to 12 other destinations in Europe, namely Barcelona, Berlin, Copenhagen, Dusseldorf, Hamburg, Istanbul, Lyon, Munich, Nice, Prague, Stockholm and Warsaw.
