PAL ties up with Japan's All Nippon Airways

A Japanese airline has entered into a commercial agreement with Philippine Airlines (PAL) that would pave the way for the expansion of their operations.

In a statement, All Nippon Airways (ANA) and PAL announced that they have agreed to establish a commercial partnership covering areas such as code-share and frequent flyer programs, subject to necessary government approvals.

The agreement will benefit customers of both airlines by providing them with greater choice and flexibility. The code-share between the two countries is due to commence on October 26, with reciprocal frequent flyers programs between ANA and PAL to begin at the same time.

ANA added its new service between Haneda International Airport and Manila International Airport starting March, while PAL launched a daytime service. PAL and ANA will have a combined 74 flights a week between the Philippines and Japan.

Under the code-share, ANA will add its “NH” designator code to PAL-operated flights not only between Japan and Philippine but also within Philippines flights.

PAL will also add its “PR” designator code to flights between Japan and the Philippines and to domestic flights within Japan operated by ANA.

Passengers between Japan and the Philippines will also be able to take advantage of through check-in reducing minimum connection times at Manila airport from 120 minutes to 90 when connecting to onward domestic flights.
