JAL Reorganizes International Flight Numbers from FY2010

Tokyo, April 20, 2009: Japan Airlines (JAL) announced today that it will reorganize the flight numbers of several of its international passenger flights from March 28, 2010 in preparation for the anticipated increase in traffic at Tokyos 2 airports, Narita International Airport and Haneda Airport, upon the completion of their expansion.

 

The purpose of the revision is to make flight numbers of the JAL Group more comprehensible and easy to remember. JAL currently groups most international passenger flight numbers according to region, with a few exceptions. After the change, all flights will be correctly labeled with a number that demarcates the region it flies to.

 

Flights between Tokyo, Narita and China, as well as Taiwan, will also bear new 3-digit flight numbers that start with the numeric 8, incidentally a number that is often considered auspicious in the Chinese culture.

 

For JAL flights operating at Haneda Airport, international flights will start to carry 2-digit numbers which will easily differentiate them from the domestic flights.

 

With effect from May 2, 2009, the new flight numbers will be used in the reservations of international flights in FY2010.
