JAL and Malaysia Airlines aim to form 'joint venture'

Carriers to share income and gain Southeast Asian and North American passengers

TOKYO -- Japan Airlines and Malaysia Airlines are entering a flight-sharing and marketing tie-up, as the Japanese carrier takes another step to expand its Asian alliances since it was freed from government restrictions in 2017.

The restrictions were imposed after the airline in 2010 was bailed out under the Corporate Rehabilitation Law. The tie-up with Malaysia Airlines is expected to strengthen its network of international flights.
