Carriers begin selling fares between Europe and Japan
Finnair and its fellow oneworld alliance members Japan Airlines and British Airways are now selling joint fares between Europe and Japan, for travel after 1 April 2014.
The Finnish flag carrier says that customers will benefit from more flexible routing options and the ability to mix and match flights on all three carriers for the most convenient scheduling and best pricing.
Currently, Finnair flies daily from Helsinki to Tokyo as well as five times a week – daily in summer – to Osaka and Nagoya, connecting Japan to more than 50 of the airline’s destinations in Europe.
Japan Airlines and BA are increasing their scheduled services between Japan and Europe this summer and improving the flights’ timings. From May, two additional weekly services means that BA will fly twice daily to Tokyo with daily flights to both Haneda and Narita airports, while Japan Airlines will launch new day-time nonstop flights from 30 March between Haneda and London.
