Airlines to cooperate on cargo

Japan Airlines and American Airlines have signed a cooperation agreement on air cargo, holding out the promise of more route choices, new destinations, and increased cargo capacity.

The two airlines have begun using Los Angeles, Chicago, Dallas/Fort Worth, New York and Honolulu as key transfer points for cargo traffic in the United States and Tokyo, Osaka and Nagoya as transfer points in Japan.

In addition, new synergies between the carriers’ express products will now provide seamless transfer of express shipments between the airlines. Shipments which do not exceed 100kg will now receive immediate confirmation of space on both airlines, when customers select JAL’s J-Priority and American’s Expeditesm products.
