Iberia will join Japan Airlines, British Airways and Finnair on October 18, 2016 in their joint business between Europe and Japan.
The joint business means that the four airlines will share revenue and cooperate on scheduling and pricing between Japan and Europe, providing customers with more flexible routing options and an attractive range of fares.
Last August Japanese regulators gave approval to the airlines’ plans to include Iberia in the joint business between British Airways, Japan Airlines and Finnair. The Spanish airline starts today with thrice-weekly non-stop flights Madrid-Tokyo-Madrid.
The joint business opens up all four airlines’ networks between Japan and Europe and allows the airline partners to cooperate on expanding their presence in this growing and important market. The agreement also strengthens the oneworld alliance and enables it to compete more effectively around the world with other global alliances.
