British Airways looks to partner with Japan Airlines


The slowly recovering global economy means that many companies are still trying to figure out how they can continue to grow. British Airways, the third-largest airline in Europe, recently announced that it wants to create a joint venture with Japan Airlines in order to expand their offerings.

According to Bloomberg, the new venture service would be comparable to other joint service ventures, like the partnership between British Airways and Qantas Airways on U.K.-Australian routes.

The reason why the airlines are in talks about this potential partnership because of the ever improving economic environment that has been predicted for airlines in the upcoming year.

Japan Airlines is currently restructuring their company, after their filed for bankruptcy protection earlier this year. Currently, they are agreeing to stay in a code share agreement with American Airlines, British Airways and other OneWorld airlines after rejecting the SkyTeam Alliance.

British Airways is the flag carrier airline of the UK and is the third largest airline company in Europe.
