Japan Airlines (JAL) and India’s full-service carrier, Vistara, have entered a codeshare partnership that will open up more routes between India and Tokyo.
With the signing of this agreement, Vistara becomes the only codeshare partner for Japan Airlines in India. The sales of tickets open on February 26, 2019 on all channels and major GDS systems, for travel from February 28, 2019.
As part of the agreement, Japan Airlines will add its ‘JL’ designator code to approximately 32 Vistara-operated flights each day across India covering seven Indian cities, namely Mumbai, Kolkata, Chennai, Bengaluru, Hyderabad, Ahmedabad and Pune.
JAL and Vistara already have an interline/through check-in partnership and the two airlines had signed a Memorandum of Understanding in September 2017 to pursue commercial opportunities as partners.
