Japan Airlines (JAL) has expanded its codeshare agreements with American Airlines, Cathay Pacific Airways and China Airlines for flights out of Haneda Airport's new international terminal.

The carrier will place its code on fellow Oneworld member American's new daily service to New York from January 2011. As part of the agreement, JAL customers would also be able to connect to six American destinations in the USA through its new Haneda-San Francisco daily flight, which starts on 31 October. These are Dallas-Fort Worth, Los Angeles, Miami, Chicago, New York, and Honolulu.

Under an expanded agreement with Air France, passengers can connect from JAL's Haneda-Paris flight to the French cities of Marseilles and Toulouse.

The agreement also allows them to connect to 12 other European cities served by Air France. They are Stockholm, Barcelona, Copenhagen, Dusseldorf, Hamburg, Lyon, Nice, Munich, Berlin, Prague, Warsaw and Istanbul.

JAL will also market Oneworld carrier Cathay Pacific's twice daily flights to Hong Kong, and China Airlines' twice daily flights to Taipei Songshan. Both are scheduled to begin on 31 October.

Existing codeshare partners Korean Air and China Eastern will also increase their services on the Haneda-Seoul Gimpo and Haneda-Shanghai Hongqiao routes, says JAL.

As a result, JAL will be able to offer its customers up to 22 daily flights a day from Haneda, reaching out to 11 cities around the world.
