JAL Indonesia Flight Frequency and Route Changes

Tokyo, Thursday October 20: JAL has decided to reduce flight frequency and change routings on its Japan-Indonesia flights from October 30th, following a significant decrease in passenger demand from Japan resulting from the terrorist bombing on Bali Island on October 1, 2005. The changes are temporary and start on October 30 and will be in effect until December 22.

JAL currently provides three daily direct services between Japan and Indonesia: Tokyo (Narita) - Denpasar (Bali); Osaka (Kansai) - Denpasar and Tokyo (Narita) - Jakarta.

JAL will continue to serve Denpasar and Jakarta from Tokyo on a daily basis by consolidating the flights to a Narita-Jakarta-Denpasar-Narita routing in place of separate, direct flights. At the same time, JAL will reduce its Osaka-Denpasar service from seven to three flights per week.

The changes are subject to approval by the Japanese Ministry of Land Infrastructure and Transport (MLIT).
