Effective April 1, AUSTRIAN and SWISS will become part of an existing codeshare arrangement that is in place between Lufthansa and ANA.   The codeshare agreement will allow ‘OS’ and ‘LX’ passengers convenient access to ANA’s route network with a single booking which will make travel to Asia even easier.   Conversely, ANA passengers will be able to take advantage  of SWISS’ and AUSTRIAN’s extensive European networks with single bookings through ANA.

The initial agreement between Lufthansa and ANA was filed by the airlines in April of 2012 and  approved by the Japanese Competition Authority in September of 2012.
