American Airlines announced a new codeshare agreement with Jetstar Japan on Wednesday.
The agreement will allow American to place its AA code on flights between Tokyo and five other Japanese cities and make it easier for American passengers to connect on to Jetstar flights. The codeshares start on October 26.
"Jetstar Japan’s network provides our customers with access to more destinations in Japan," said American chief marketing officer Andrew Nocella in a statement.
American has been increasing its presence in Asia, adding flights to Hong Kong and Shanghai out of its hub at Dallas/Fort Worth airport. Earlier this month, American petitioned the U.S. government for the right to fly between Los Angeles and Tokyo's Haneda airport. The carrier also has a joint business agreement with Japan Airlines.
