Emirates, JAL expands codesharing deal

Emirates, the airline owned by the government of Dubai, and Japan Airlines (JAL) have agreed to expand their existing code share partnership between Japan and Dubai. From June 1, the code share agreement allows JAL to place its flight code on round trip flights operated by Emirates between Dubai International Airport and Nagoya’s Chubu International Airport, popularly known as Centrair.

On the same day Emirates will launch direct non-stop services four times a week between the two airports, expanding into a daily operation from July 1. The expanded arrangements include JAL’s domestic flights to and from two important cities - *censored*uoka in the south and Sapporo in the north of Japan.

Currently, the two airlines code share on Emirates’ daily non-stop service between Osaka’s Kansai International Airport and Dubai, as well as on JAL’s domestic flights operating between Osaka and Tokyo, Sapporo and *censored*uoka.
