Japan Airlines is expanding its partnership with China Eastern Airlines by increasing the number of eligible flights under the airlines' Mileage Partnership Agreement making it easier for customers to earn and redeem mileage.
From June 1, JAL Mileage Bank (JMB) members can earn mileage on all flights operated by China Eastern on Japan-China routes as well as China domestic routes including non-codeshare flights that were not applicable for mileage accumulation before. Consequently, JMB members can now accrue mileage on additional 28 routes with 154 China Eastern-operated flights a week.
JAL and China Eastern first entered into a mileage agreement in February 2008 and have also been codeshare partners since 2002. Currently, JAL codeshares on China Eastern-operated flights plying 18 routes between China and Japan and on 5 Chinese domestic routes.
Together with the comprehensive network of its partner airlines Cathay Pacific Airways and Dragonair - fellow members in the airline alliance oneworld, as well as China Eastern - one of China's leading airlines, JAL strives to bring customers traveling between Japan and China greater convenience and benefits.© Japan Today
