Japan Airlines (JAL) has reached an interline agreement with Myanmar Airways International (MAI), in an effort to counter All Nippon Airway's recently inaugurated trice-weekly direct service to Yangon. Under the deal, 21 of JAL's 29 weekly services between Japan and Bangkok will connect with MAI's onward flights to Yangon. JAL has also reached a provisional deal with Qantas to operate 14 weekly codeshare flights from Tokyo to Brisbane and Cairns.
