In addition to the existing code-share on Japanese carrier's Mumbai -Tokyo direct flights, Airways will place its marketing code on other flights between Hong Kong-Tokyo/Osaka and Bangkok-Tokyo, it said.

Commenting on the agreement, Airways Chief Executive Nikos Kardassis said, "Our code-share agreement with Airways is another distinctive travel solution. Thanks to the expanded code-share agreement, we will be able to offer our guests wider access, unmatched connectivity and seamless travel to Japan's key markets".
