JAL Group Adjusts Flight Frequency and Fleet Plans for 2010 Winter Schedule

- Matching supply with demand for improved convenience and profitability -

 

Tokyo, August 20, 2010: The JAL Group (JAL) announced today, revisions made to a part of its route, flight frequency and fleet plan for the winter schedule of fiscal year 2010 based on plans announced on April 28, 2010 which was formulated to achieve a swift revitalization. Adjustments were made mainly to the flight frequency on select routes and aircraft downsizing measures to more accurately suit demand and thereby improve customer convenience as well as profitability.

 

On its international network, JAL has been downsizing aircraft where appropriate and also responding keenly to demand. JAL will schedule for the first time, its latest fully-reclining first class seat - JAL SUITE, on the route between Tokyo (Narita) and Jakarta from October 31 this year. Also, from December 1, flights operated by JAL Group subsidiary airline JALways which carry the code “JO”, and flights operated by main carrier Japan Airlines International (JALI), will be unified to improve operational efficiency and all flight numbers by both operators will be marked with “JL” - the flight code of JALI from then on.

 

Domestically, with the expansion of take-off and landing slots at Tokyo’s Haneda Airport afforded by the completion of the fourth runway, JAL will increase the number of daily flights between Haneda and 5 local regions in Japan.
