BA and Japan airlines link-up good for passengers

Passengers look set to benefit from a newly announced partnership between British Airways and Japan Airlines.

The joint business agreement , relates to flights between Europe and Japan, will result in better links between the two regions, a wider choice of services, enhanced frequent flyer benefits and more potential to launch new routes.

IAG, which was formed last year from the merger of British Airways and Spanish carrier Iberia, said that the revenue-sharing agreement would enable it to compete more effectively with other airlines

IAG chief executive Willie Walsh said: ‘British Airways has a long history of flying to Japan and linking the world’s third largest economy to the UK and Europe.

‘We have very close links with Japan Airlines and look forward to enhancing that relationship further.’
