JAL Announces New Executive Officers

Tokyo, January 29, 2010: The Japan Airlines Group today announced the formation of a new executive management team for the holding company, Japan Airlines Corporation (JALS), and of its main operating company Japan Airlines International (JALI) with effect from February 8, 2010.

In pursuit of a more streamlined management structure, the position of managing executive officer will be removed and the number of executive officers reduced by 11 from the previous team.

With a younger, slimmer top management that is expected to comprehensively draw up and speedily implement effective measures, the JAL Group is determined to achieve a swift revitalization of the company.

Under the new leadership of Mr. Kazuo Inamori as the JAL Group chairman, and Mr. Masaru Onishi as president, both assuming office from February 1, 2010, the newly-appointed board members, executive officers, and every employee of the JAL Group will work collectively as one to continue offering customers flights of the highest safety and service levels.
