Japan’s largest carrier All Nippon Airways (ANA) and leading US carrier Continental Airlines recently announced the expansion of their codeshare agreement allowing the passengers to choose from a wider and more convenient range of options when traveling between Japan and the US.
The codeshare agreement will also include United Airline’s Narita-Houston, Narita-New York and Japan-Guam flights.
Keisuke Okada, Executive Vice President of ANA, said, “Our trans-Pacific agreement with Continental Airlines in March is already working successfully. This development of our partnership will expand the networks of both airlines and offer our valued customers a more convenient selection of flights between Asia and the United States.”
Codeshare agreement became effective on Japan-Guam routes from June 1. Earlier, codeshares on Narita-Houston and Narita-New York flights have already been launched since May 1 this year.
Since March 28 last year, the two airlines have already been operating codeshare flights. Until the recent expansion, the codeshare agreement had initially been operational with ANA’s trans-Pacific routes, ANA’s domestic routes and Continental Airlines’ US routes.
