Europe/Asia: ANA and ITA Sign Codeshare Agreement

All Nippon Airways, the largest Japanese carrier, and ITA Airways, the Italian national carrier, have signed a codeshare agreement connecting their networks.

The new commercial partnership will provide more travel opportunities for customers of both Companies, who will benefit from the enhanced connectivity via Rome Fiumicino and Tokyo Haneda, the two airlines' hubs.

Thanks to this agreement, effective from January 24th, All Nippon Airways and ITA Airways travelers will fly to their desired destination with a single ticket, checking-in at the departure airport and collecting their checked baggage at the final destination airport.

Available for sale from January 17th, All Nippon Airways will apply its "NH" code on ITA Airways' flight between Haneda and Rome as well as 5 destinations in Italy in connection with Rome Fiumicino Airport (Bologna, Venice, Turin, Florence, Naples), while ITA Airways will add its "AZ" code on 6 domestic Japanese destinations (Fukuoka, Hiroshima, Itami, Kansai, Okinawa and Sapporo). ANA and ITA are considering to further expand their cooperation by adding additional codes in the near future.

This agreement will contribute to further consolidate the economic and commercial relations between Italy and Japan and will offer Italian tourists the opportunity to broadly discover the wonders of Japan and to Japanese citizens the opportunity to easily travel to Italy, ensuring the highest standards of safety.

ITA seems to be making all the rights moves on the Commercial side of the business and this tie up gives them a huge opportunity for access into Asia. ITA seems to be the airline to watch in Europe at the moment as it's growth will certainly put pressure on other operators in Italy (mostly foreign) that took a slice of the Alitalia market , the readjustment period seems to have begun.
