Japan Airlines and Malaysia Airlines (the flag carriers of Japan and Malaysia) are going to launch a new business partnership on the 25th of July. The partnership was due to commence months ago, but due to travel restrictions, it didn’t happen. Yuji Akasaka, the President of Japan Airlines, has now revealed:“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.” The partnership was agreed upon early last year. Both carriers will operate 4 weekly flights each from KL to Tokyo. 13th of July 2020.
