JAl expands network to Brazil with American Airlines codeshare
Japan Airlines (JAL) will strengthen its network in the two largest cities of Brazil - Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro, with the start of a new codeshare arrangement with American Airlines (American), beginning Jan 27.
JAL will add Rio de Janeiro as a new destination in its international network, and increase the number of codeshare flights to and from Sao Paulo with this latest agreement.
JAL and American, both members of the oneworld alliance, entered a joint business agreement on April 1, 2011 to partner on trans-Pacific services offered by both airlines. As part of the continual close cooperation, JAL will market round-trip flights operated by American from Dallas Fort Worth as well as from New York’s John F Kennedy, to the cities of Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro, giving customers more options when traveling to Brazil for business or for leisure.
