JAL links to Expedia Japan

From this month, customers visiting Japan Airlines’
Japanese website, www.jal.co.jp will be able to link through to www.expedia.co.jp.Launched on November 29 2006, Expedia Japan’s Japanese-language hotel booking site now contains
detailed information on over 34,000 hotels in more than 140 countries worldwide, ideal for JAL
passengers based in Japan planning a trip overseas.
Expedia has its own travel specialists who visit the hotels listed on the site to ensure descriptions are
accurate and up-to-date. The attractive easy-to-use site has 360¼ virtual tours, high-quality pictures and
user opinions, so customers can find out exactly what each hotel is like before making a booking.
JAL and Expedia Japan will conduct a special promotional campaign in Japan from September 19
until the end of December 2007. During the campaign period, everyone who connects through
www.jal.co.jp to make a hotel booking at www.expedia.co.jp will receive 100 bonus miles from JAL
Mileage Bank, JAL’s frequent flyer program. A total 50 people who have made reservations during the
campaign period in the same way will be selected at random, and each will be presented with Expedia
gift coupons worth 20,000 yen.
JAL, Japan and Asia’s largest airline, already has similar tie-ups with four other online hotel booking
websites which offer customers a choice of 20,000 hotels located outside of Japan. With the addition
of the Expedia Japan site the hotel selection will increase to over 34,000.
