The two airlines have announced that they will be undertaking joint business initiatives to provide better flight links between Europe and Japan, to expand and to offer flights to a greater number of destinations.
The two airlines will collaborate and are expected to develop frequent flyer programs for passengers on any of their services between Japan and the UK (19 in total). This collaboration also applies to Japan Airlines' flights to Pairs and Frankfurt.
The two flight companies are also set to pair their websites in order to enable passengers to find their flight information on either website - regardless of which airline they are flying with.
The move comes after the German and Japanese airlines Lufthansa and All Nippon Airways agreed a similar business deal last year, allowing the team to control 37% of the Europe-Japan flight market according to the Telegraph. The deal between BA and Japan Airlines is expected to come into force on October 1st, allowing them to catch up slightly and capitalise on 23% of the same market.
