Vistara-Japan Airlines enter into codeshare partnership
New Delhi, Feb 22 : Full-service domestic carrier Vistara and Japan Airlines (JAL) on Friday entered into a codeshare partnership intended to open more routes between India and Tokyo.
The two airlines already have an interline or through check-in partnership and have also signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) in September 2017 to pursue commercial opportunities together.
"With the signing of this agreement, Vistara becomes the only codeshare partner for Japan Airlines in India. The sale of tickets open on 26 February 2019 on all channels and major GDS systems, for travel from 28 February 2019," the full-service domestic carrier said in a statement.
The codeshare flights are expected to provide convenient connections to and from a daily flight that JAL already operates to Delhi directly from Tokyo's Narita airport.
