Hawaiian Airlines and Japan Airlines started their codeshare flights on March 25. Guests traveling between Japan and Hawai‘i now enjoy this new partnership that brings together JAL’s network of over 30 domestic cities and 11 international destinations and Hawaiian’s convenient flight connections throughout its island chain.
Phase one of the comprehensive partnership includes:
Hawaiian, the largest U.S. carrier for service between Japan and Hawai‘i, has carried over 3 million guests via its gateways in Haneda and Narita, Sapporo and Osaka since launching service in 2010. JAL, the number one carrier on the route, transported over 1 million travelers between Japan and Hawai‘i in 2017.
JAL and Hawaiian plan to further enhance their partnership by creating a joint venture through an antitrust immunity agreement. The carriers anticipate filing their request with the U.S. Department of Transportation and Japanese authorities next month.
