On January 13, Makinohara, Shizuoka Prefecture-based Fuji Dream Airlines (FDA) and Shinagawa Ward, Tokyo-based Japan Airlines (JAL) announced that they have concluded a letter of agreement towards examining joint operations and codeshared flight operations for their air transport businesses.

In this difficult business environment, airline companies are pursuing efforts to make their businesses more efficient and stable. The two carriers, both of which share points in common such as owning the same model of aircraft (the ERJ170), have determined that there is a wide range of benefits to be had from building a cooperative relationship and began talks on the subject. In addition to working together on aircraft operation and maintenance, airport handling, sales and other areas of their business, the two airlines will consider the early implementation of code-share flight operations on FDA routes, among other matters.

On the same day, FDA also announced that it will officially take over some of the domestic routes between Fukuoka and Matsumoto Airports to be cut by JAL.
