ANA and Alitalia pen commercial partnership on routes

All Nippon Airways (ANA) and Alitalia have signed an agreement to establish a commercial partnership.

From 28 October 2018, the two carriers will commence codeshare operations on Japan – Italy routes as well as domestic routes within Japan and Italy.

In addition, ANA and Alitalia will cooperate also on frequent flyer programs mutually giving reciprocity access to their members and activating mileage accrual on codeshare routes and mileage redemption on the partners’ network.

Both carriers said they acknowledge the Japan – Italy market to be important as the travel demand between Japan and Italy is steadily growing. The cooperation among ANA and Alitalia will expand the network between Japan and Italy, which will benefit customers by providing them with greater choice and flexibility.

The two airlines said they plan to further grow the commercial cooperation by including further codeshare routes in near future, thus strengthening the bridge between Japan and Italy.
