British Airways may be facing the breakup of its joint venture with Qantas, but the UK flag-carrier is ready to embark on a new relationship with Japan Airlines.

Earlier this month, JAL and British Airways began offering codeshare flights between Tokyo (both Haneda and Narita airport) and London (Heathrow).

The joint business will now see the two airlines cooperating on all non-stop flights operated by JAL or British Airways between Japan and Europe.
