Following a decision from the Malaysian Aviation Commission (MAVCOM) Malaysia Airlines and Japan Airlines are ready to launch a joint business structure in 2020 to grant an individual exemption and Japan’s Ministry of Land, Infra, transport, and tourism for an antitrust immunity.
The joint business partnership inked in May was an expansion of the code-sharing deal between the two carriers that started working together in 2012 when Malaysia Airlines joined the oneworld alliance.
Both airlines said in a joint statement the agreement would allow them to co-operate commercially on flights between Malaysia and Japan and deliver customers more benefits by providing additional flight choices, a larger network, better connections and an enhanced frequent flyer programme.
Captain Izham Ismail, Malaysia Airlines chief executive officer, expressed confidence that with this partnership “we will be able to deliver important benefits to our customers and to grow the business between our countries.”
