Japan just got closer!
S7 Airlines and Japan Airlines (JAL) Sign Interline Agreement
Today, a bilateral agreement on the reciprocal acceptance of travel documents (an interline agreement) between S7 Airlines and Japan Airlines comes into effect. This is S7’s first such agreement with a Japanese carrier; Japan Airlines is one of the biggest in the world and has an extensive route network, with flights to 216 cities in 35 countries around the world, as well as 61 in Japan. Its fleet comprises 278 aircraft.
It is now possible to arrange air travel between any points on the flight networks of S7 Airlines and Japan Airlines using a single form provided by either of these airlines, which saves passengers time and money.
‘From November 15 any ticket office will be able to use an S7 form to make out a ticket to Japan and onwards to anywhere on Japan Airlines’ route network. S7 flights will connect with Japan Airlines flights in Beijing, Seoul and Bangkok. The airline will also operate direct flights from Tokyo to Moscow Sheremetyevo with a Boeing 777’, said Dmitry Pavlushin, head of the S7 Group’s Interline Department.
S7 Airlines is an active member of IATA (the International Air Transport Association), and is gradually expanding the geographical scope of its international flights. In recent years it has worked intensively to conclude interline agreements with other airlines. At present, it has such agreements with more than 60 airlines, including Lufthansa, British Airways, Korean Air, Air China, Qantas Airways, Delta, Thai Airways, and Iberia.
