Earlier this month, Hawaiian Airlines filed an application with the U.S. Department of Transportation seeking immunity from antitrust laws to create a joint venture (JV) with Japan Airlines that promises significant advantages for consumers.
If approved, this will be Hawaiian’s first JV, and the first JV in the United States that does not involve one of the three largest U.S. carriers.
The joint venture would facilitate Hawaiian’s enhanced access to 34 destinations throughout Japan, including Nagoya and Okinawa, as well as 11 Asian gateways beyond Japan. It is estimated that the Proposed Alliance will contribute between $184.5 million and $402 million to the U.S. economy annually, while generating between 1,855 to 4,049 U.S. jobs.
The application we filed jointly with Japan Airlines outlines many other benefits, including increased flight choices for passengers, shorter connecting times and the ability to earn and redeem frequent flyer miles on a much larger network.
