JAL Group Revises Route, Flight Frequency and Fleet Plans for FY2012

TOKYO August 21, 2012: Japan Airlines (JAL) today announced revisions made to its route, flight frequency and fleet plans for the remaining of fiscal year 2012, the year ending March 31, 2013, highlighted by the launch of two new routes using the latest Boeing 787-8, and also the deployment of this revolutionary aircraft on existing routes to raise service levels and profitability.

 

On its international network, as was announced, the 787-8 will be used to inaugurate the world’s first and only nonstop flight between San Diego (USA) and Asia with the service from Tokyo (Narita) commencing in December, and to start direct flights between Narita and Helsinki (Finland) in March 2013. More imminently, the 787-8 will be used for the additional daily service between Narita and Singapore slated to begin from October 28, 2012, increasing weekly flights to the city-state from 14 to 21. On the other hand, to meet the thriving demand for flights to and from New Delhi, JAL will increase flight frequency from 5 to 7 weekly round-trip flights along with upsizing the aircraft used on the Narita=New Delhi route to 777-200ERs. To more closely align supply with demand, adjustments are also made to the aircraft assignments for flights to and from China and Taiwan.

 

Domestically, flight frequencies on certain routes will be modified to match demand and the changes in travel patterns of customers influenced in part by the change in seasons. Additionally, current services between Tokyo (Haneda), as well as Osaka (Kansai) and Ishigaki will become nonstop both ways after the official opening of the New Ishigaki Airport.
