Japan Airlines and Hainan Airlines have expanded their code share
agreement to cover two additional domestic China routes.The two airlines have code shared since June 1, 2005 on daily flights operated by Hainan
Airlines between Beijing and Chengdu. From April 10, 2006, the new agreement allows
JAL to also place its ‘JL’ flight number on the following daily round trip flights operated
by Hainan Airlines between Beijing and the cities of Kunming and Xian.
The flights provide smooth connections in Beijing to passengers traveling to Kunming, Xian or Chengdu from
Japan. Members of JAL’s frequent flyer program, the JAL Mileage Bank can also accumulate mileage on
these ‘JL’ designated flights.
Hainan Airlines and JAL have also been operating non-stop international code share flights between Kansai
International airport, and Haikou in southern China since October 31, 2004.
JAL continues to offer its passengers the largest network between Japan and China. Including code shares, JAL
offers 240 flights per week from Japan to 12 destinations in China.
