Code-sharing between JAL, Vietjet could lift off this fiscal year

Japanese airline aims to expand through international partnerships, chief says

Vietjet has been competitive on domestic flights against state-owned rival Vietnam Airlines.

TOKYO -- Japan Airlines will begin code-sharing with Vietnamese budget carrier Vietjet Air as early as the current fiscal year ending in March, the head of the Japanese carrier told The Nikkei on Wednesday.

JAL operates three routes from Tokyo to Vietnam: two linking Narita Airport with Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City, and one between Haneda Airport and Ho Chi Minh City. One round-trip flight per day is offered on each of the routes.
