Japan Airlines is the largest airline in Japan and the sixth largest in the world. Currently, Africa is the only continent not included in the flight plan. In 2007, the company became a member of the oneworld alliance. The history of the airline started long before the official foundation. As early as the 1920s, the forerunners of the company were founded. After the Japanese capitulation in the Pacific War the allied forces forbade any kind of air traffic. Only in 1951 did flight service resume and was consolidated under Japan Air Lines Co. Ltd. Initially, only the local network of routes were reopened before the first international flight from Tokyo to San Francisco was launched in 1954. In 2001 Japan Air Systems and Japan Airlines merged and the current name was introduced. Nowadays the worldwide air route network includes more than 100 destinations and the connections to other Asian countries are well developed. Additionally, Japan Airlines is the only Asian airline offering service to Mexico City. Other American destinations include Chicago, Vancouver, Sao Paulo and Honolulu. In Europe, major cities including London, Paris, Rome, Milan, Frankfurt, Amsterdam and Moscow are served. Different destinations can be reached via codeshare agreements with partner airlines.
