HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

Two of the most popular airlines between Hawaii and Japan launched a new partnership agreement Sunday.

The new partnership between Hawaiian Airlines and Japan Airlines provides for extensive code sharing, lounge access and frequent flyer program reciprocity.

The companies say it will greatly enhance the ease and comfort for passengers traveling between the two island chains.

"We're excited to extend our reach in Japan and welcome new guests onboard Hawaiian so they may experience our hospitality and the unique charm of our islands," said Peter Ingram, president and CEO at Hawaiian Airlines.

“Hawaiian Airlines is well known among Japanese travelers for its warm hospitality and its excellent record for punctuality and safety,” said Japan Airlines president Yoshiharu Ueki. 

JAL guests will now have unlimited access to Hawaiian’s vast neighbor island and Japan-Hawai’i network, including non-stop flights between Sapporo and Honolulu.

Hawaiian Airlines will have full access to JAL’s domestic network, which includes Nagoya, Fukuoka, Sendai and Aomori.

JAL Mileage Bank and HawaiianMiles members will be able to earn miles on the codeshare flights. 

Guests will also  have access to both airlines’ lounges.
