JAL widens codeshare with Alaska Airlines to US West Coast gateways

February 2, 2018

TOKYO - Japan Airlines and Alaska Airlines have agreed to expand their existing codeshare partnership. The two initially entered a commercial partnership in June 2016 to provide new network opportunities in the U.S.

With the merger of Alaska Airlines and Virgin America completed in December 2016, the carrier expanded its network out of San Francisco and Los Angeles. JAL says its new agreement will provide JAL customers with more flight options and access to key U.S. West Coast gateways.

Reservation and ticket sales for the new codeshare flights will start from February 6, pending Government approvals.  www.jal.com (ATI).
