Japan Airlines will join oneworld, the airline alliance led by British Airways and American Airlines, in early 2007, the carriers said on Sunday.
JAL, Asia's biggest carrier, first announced plans to join the global network in October, seeking to bolster its services and operations after a series of safety mishaps hurt its image.
The plans were formalized at a oneworld board meeting in Paris ahead of a meeting of global airlines lobby IATA on Monday.
JAL aims to attract more travelers by taking advantage of a bigger route network and interline electronic ticketing.
