Malaysia Airlines and Japan Airlines (JAL) are to cooperate commercially on flights between Malaysia and Japan, effective July 25.
Both airlines will offer a combined total of four weekly services between Kuala Lumpur - Tokyo Narita for the last week of July and August.
Izham Ismail, Group Chief Executive Officer of Malaysia Airlines, said, “I am excited that the joint business is finally taking off after a few months of delay due to travel restrictions between both countries. We look forward to the bilateral discussions between the governments of Malaysia and Japan to establish a travel bubble between the two countries, which will ease restrictions for cross-border travel. Malaysia Airlines, being the country’s national airline and Japan Airlines play a crucial role in reviving the economy and we are confident that this synergy will facilitate commerce, trade, and boost tourism for both countries.”
JAL President Yuji Akasaka added, “We are pleased to announce our newest joint business partnership with fellow oneworld member, Malaysia Airlines. While our expanded relationship is being launched during unprecedented times, it has allowed both Japan Airlines and Malaysia Airlines to ensure the highest standards of safety and hygiene are in place from the onset for our mutual customers’ peace of mind. And with hospitality in mind, we are confident that customers will delight in the in-flight experience and enjoy convenient flight schedules and seamless services.”© Asia Travel Tips
