Tokyo - Finnair, Japan Airlines and British Airways are now selling joint fares between Europe and Japan, for travel after April 1, 2014.

This will give travellers more flexible routing options and the ability to mix and match flights on all three carriers.

Currently, Finnair flies daily from Helsinki to Tokyo and five times per week to Osaka and Nagoya, connecting Japan to more than 50 Finnair destinations in Europe.  Japan Airlines and British Airways are expected to increase their scheduled services between Japan and Europe, as well as to improve timings of flights.

British Airways will fly to Tokyo twice daily, with daily flights to both Haneda and Narita airports, and Japan Airlines is expected to launch new day-time nonstop flights on 30 March 2014, between Haneda and London.
