Malaysia Airlines CEO Captain Izham Ismail said the partnership would enable them “to deliver important benefits to our customers and to grow the business between our countries”.

KUALA LUMPUR: Japan Airlines and Malaysia Airlines are set to launch a joint business structure in 2020 to cooperate commercially on flights between Malaysia and Japan, the carriers said in a statement on Thursday.

They said this followed after the Malaysian Aviation Commission (MAVCOM) granted an individual exemption and Japan’s Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism to grant an antitrust immunity.

“The agreement for joint business will allow the two carriers to cooperate commercially on flights between Malaysia and Japan and aims to deliver customers with more benefits by providing additional flight choices, a larger network, better connections and an enhanced frequent flyer programme, ” it said.

President of Japan Airlines Yuji Akasaka thanked the regulators for approving the ATI application with Malaysia Airlines.

“We anticipate launching this joint business relationship in 2020 to provide additional travel benefits for our mutual customers.”

Malaysia Airlines CEO Captain Izham Ismail said the partnership would enable them “to deliver important benefits to our customers and to grow the business between our countries”.
