Japan Airlines and American Airlines have enhanced their cargo relationship which started from early April, with a new air freight routing through five key cities in the US and three Japanese cities. “The tighter cargo relationship is expected to enable both airlines to provide their respective customers with additional value, while maximising the utilisation of cargo capacity for both airlines,” Japan Airlines said. “In addition, new synergies between the carriers’ express products will now provide seamless transfer of express shipments between the airlines.” The agreement also means that Honolulu is now a key hub for the transfer of cargo between the Americas and Asia. In addition to Honolulu, the new key transfer points in the US are Los Angeles, Chicago, Dallas/Fort Worth and New York. In Japan, the carriers will route freight through Tokyo, Osaka and Nagoya.
