Japan’s largest airline, All Nippon Airways (ANA), and Juneyao Airlines, Shanghai based airline established in 2006, announced the launch of codeshare and frequent flyer program partnership, starting from March 25, 2018.
Through this partnership, ANA aims to leverage its important gateway Shanghai, and offer its passengers seamless and convenient connections to regional destinations in China. For ANA, this will mark the first codeshare and frequent flyer partnership with a Star Alliance Connecting Partner.
Juneyao Airlines currently operates mainly to local destinations in China and to cities in neighboring countries. In order to expand its network, the carrier became the first Star Alliance Connecting Partner in 2017, and now aims to further expand its reach into Japanese regional areas through the new partnership with ANA.
Both carriers are keen to deliver an even broader network, and increase the value for their customers by offering them a wider range of choices through convenient connections and additional mileage accrual and redemption options.
