More Choices, More Convenience, More Enhancements
Beginning March 25, 2018, a new partnership will greatly enhance the ease and comfort of travel for passengers traveling between the two island chains, with extensive code sharing, lounge access and frequent flyer reciprocity.
As part of this comprehensive partnership, the two carriers also intend to establish a joint venture designed to provide even more choices, convenience and enhancements to the traveling public to/from Japan and beyond to multiple Asian markets.
JAL guests will have unlimited access to Hawaiian’s vast Neighbor Island and Japan-Hawai’i network, including non-stop flights between Sapporo and Honolulu. Hawaiian Airlines will have full access to JAL’s domestic network, which includes Nagoya, Fukuoka, Sendai and Aomori.
Hawaiian’s Japan-to-Hawaii flights will be offered as new options within Japan Airlines’ wholly owned subsidiary, JALPAK, a highly reputable package tour operator in Japan.
Earn and Redeem Miles on Flights
Launching October 1, 2018, HawaiianMiles members can earn and redeem miles on all of Japan Airlines flights. JAL Mileage Bank members can earn and redeem miles for flights on Hawaiian Airlines excluding Hawaii-North America routes.
Guests will eventually be able to enjoy access to both airlines' lounges, enhancing their travel experience. Stay tuned for more information on lounge access availability.
