ANA, StarFlyer to Codeshare on Flights Between Tokyo and Osaka

All Nippon Airways and StarFlyer have announced that they will begin codesharing on four daily flights between Tokyo's Haneda Airport and Osaka's Kansai Airport from November 1, 2008.

The two Japanese airlines have been co-operating since February 2006, when StarFlyer started using All Nippon Airways's (ANA) reservation system, and ANA training facilities. The two have a codesharing agreement on StarFlyer-operated flights between Haneda and Kitakyushu in southern Japan since June 2007.

StarFlyer will operate the Haneda-Kansai flights out of ANA's base in Haneda Airport's Terminal-2, while its Kitakyushu flights will continue to operate out of Terminal-1.

To facilitate ease of boarding, ANA self-service service units have been in place at Terminal-1 and also at StarFlyer check-in counters at the Kitakyushu Airport since the beginning of the codesharing agreement.
