Japan Airlines Corp. and All Nippon Airways Co. have launched a joint electronic ticketing service for international flights, in a rare cooperative move between the two top rivals.

Starting Wednesday, a shared computer system began holding information that used to be printed on paper boarding passes, including departure dates and flight numbers, so passengers can travel on just their identification, such as a passport.

The joint e-ticketing service will be available for people who fly on ANA domestic flights from a regional airport to Narita airport and then switch to an international JAL flight. Passengers also can use the service when leaving Japan on one of the airlines and returning on the other.
