 |  May 27, 2019

Malaysia Airlines Bhd (MAB) and Japan Airlines (JAL) have inked a MoU to pursue a joint business agreement to enhance the quality of services provided by both carriers on flights between Malaysia and Japan.

MAB said on Monday both carriers would also seek to cooperate in a wider scope, such as exchanging best practices, exploring collaboration in other operational areas such as cargo and developing jointly tourism in both Japanese and Malaysian markets.

“Both MAB and JAL have already filed an application with Mavcom and Japan`s Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism, seeking exemptions/immunity from antitrust laws. If approved, MAB and JAL will strive to deliver convenient travel options to customers with a comprehensive network throughout Malaysia and Japan,” it said in a statement.

Malaysia Airlines operates a 12 times weekly service and Japan Airlines operates a seven times weekly service, representing a total 19 times weekly flights, between Kuala Lumpur to Tokyo.
