OSAKA — Japan Airlines, All Nippon Airways and Japan Air System opened shared counters Wednesday at Tokyo’s Haneda airport and Osaka’s Kansai airport for passengers using shuttle flights between Tokyo and Osaka.

Two counters were set up at Haneda and one at Kansai, all located in the departure lobbies of their passenger terminals, to perform a range of services for passengers, including flight reservations and ticket sales, officials at the three airlines said.

The three are also planning to open a similar common counter at Osaka airport in Itami, Hyogo Prefecture, the officials said.

The shuttle service between Tokyo and Osaka was launched on July 1 in a bid to attract travelers away from the bullet train service, which handles most of the passenger traffic between Japan’s two largest business centers.
