A Kuala Lumpur – Haneda codeshare is set for take-off from 14th August 2022, as Malaysia Airlines and Japan Airlines (JAL) expand their Joint Business Partnership. This follows Malaysia Airlines’ recent announcement to launch new direct flights on the route. The two oneworld Alliance members have inked the partnership to better serve customers and facilitate trade between Malaysia and Japan.
Kuala Lumpur – Haneda codeshare
Haneda, has a number of strategic advantages, one of which is the wide range of domestic destinations, including Osaka, Fukuoka, Nagoya, Sapporo, Okinawa as well as onward connections to international destinations within North America. Malaysia Airlines customers from Malaysia, ASEAN, Australasia, and South Asia will benefit from this new codeshare arrangement.
The flights will be operated by Malaysia Airlines between Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KUL) and Haneda Airport (HND) using their A330-300 aircraft. These offer 27 seats in Business Class, 16 Economy with extra legroom, and 247 seats in Economy Class providing a total capacity of 290 seats.
The twice-weekly service will see MH36 (JL7097) departing KUL at 2:45 pm returning as MH37 (JL7096) departing HND at 12:25 am (both local time). Tokyo time is 1 hour ahead of Kuala Lumpur.
The new Kuala Lumpur – Haneda codeshare benefits from the reopening of Japan’s international borders and both airlines expect a ready response from pent up demand for travel to Japan. Both airports offer passengers the opportunity to drop off their baggage five (5) hours before departure. Then they are free to explore the airport or just relax before departure. Those departing from Kuala Lumpur to Haneda can continue to enjoy the existing service of early check-in via web or kiosk before dropping off their baggage. In Haneda there is a dedicated ‘Early Check-In’ counter which will accept the baggage on completion of kiosk check-in or Web Check-In on JAL or Malaysia Airlines’ website.
