In any business venture, two is better than one; and strategic alliance is the name of the game to win. This is what two giant airlines did during a media briefing last October 24th at the Rockwell PowerPlant Mall, where they introduced their exciting program, “Stronger Ties in the Skies”.
Japan Airlines (JAL) was established in 1951 and is the flag carrier airline of Japan. It’s main hubs are located in Tokyo – at the Narita International Airport and Haneda Airport, and Osaka – at the Kansai International Airport and Itami Airport. JAL takes pride in having carried over 52 million passengers and over 1.1 million tons of cargo and mail.
While, the American Airlines (AA) is a major airline of the United States of America and dubbed as the world’s largest airline in terms of fleet size, revenue, scheduled passengers carried, scheduled passenger-kilometers flown, and number of destinations served. Its main hub is at Dallas, Texas.
Given their established reputation in airline industry, the partnership between Japan Airlines (JAL) and American Airlines (AA) would really provide not just convenience to passengers, but also exciting deals that are hard to refuse.
This excellent network between the two giant airlines paves the way for smoother connecting flights to different cities in the USA, Caribbean and Asia for their passengers by leveraging their partnerships and customer experience best practices to facilitate hassle-free transfers to various destinations between Asia and the Americas, and vice versa.
One example is the transit from Boston to 18 cities located on the East Coast of America, where international passengers can save time queuing in the immigration and security checks at Boston’s Logan Airport and enjoy a smoother travel experience. For Japanese passengers, they provide a Japanese transfer map to make the transit simple and easy to understand.
The usually tedious and stressful transfer in the airport that would require a passenger to allot about 2-3 hours allowance, would only take around 85 minutes to transfer from JAL to American’s North American flights and this makes connections ever smoother and stress-free.
This strategic alliance between Japan Airlines (JAL) and American Airlines (AA) is true to its form and very essence. Now, passengers can combine JAL flights with those of American Airlines’ itineraries such as departing Japan via a JAL flight, and returning on an American Airlines flight.
In Manila, JAL flights to Narita depart from Terminal 1, while American Airlines (AA) has an offline service from Manila allowing smooth connections! This is made possible by the increase in the number of AA North American flights connecting to JAL Narita flights in two hours or less. Additionally, the operating schedule for AA domestic flights departing and arriving in Los Angeles has been adjusted to reduce the wait times, allowing for speedier connections between American Airlines and Japan Airlines flights.
Both Japan Airlines (JAL) and American Airlines (AA) are members of ONEWORLD, an alliance of 13 of the world’s leading airlines, committed to providing the highest level of service and convenience across more than 1,000 destinations in almost 160 countries and regions worldwide.
Also present during the media briefing of Stronger Ties in the Skies were Mary Joy Serrano, Manager of Passenger Sales of Japan Airlines (JAL) and representatives from Rajah Travel Corporation.
