Following the announcement that it will shift flights in Tokyo, Aeroflot has announced with Japan Airlines (JAL) a new codeshare agreement for customers traveling between Japan and Russia.
Effective March 29, both airlines will begin adding their airline codes on flights operated by each other within Japan and Russia.
Japan Airlines will add its JL flight code to flights operated by Aeroflot from Moscow to 10 destinations in Russia: St Petersburg, Kazan, Yekaterinburg, Samara, Sochi, Krasnodar, Rostov, Nizhy Novgorod, Perm, and Ufa.
In return, Aeroflot will do the same with its SU code along with JAL operated flights to Sapporo, Nagoya, Osaka, Okayama, Hiroshima, Fukuoka, Nagasaki, Kumamoto, Kagoshima and Okinawa.
Both airlines will also place their flight codes on the other airline's flights between Tokyo and Moscow. At present, JAL operates five-times weekly flights between Tokyo-Narita to Moscow-Domodedovo and Aeroflot has its own seven-times weekly flights from Narita to Moscow-Sheremetyevo.
The weekly flights between Tokyo and Moscow will see a change as Aeroflot will shift its flights from Narita to Haneda, which is closer to Tokyo city center and home to main JAL's domestic hub.
