JAL Extends Support to Northern California Wildfire Relief Efforts

TOKYO - In early October 2017, a series of wildfires spread across the state of California and has engulfed over 200,000 acres to date. This wildfire has been deadly with multiple fatalities, including more than 200 individuals missing and over 90,000 being evacuated from their homes and are experiencing a very difficult moment in their livelihoods. The JAL Group would like to send our sincere condolences to all who have lost loved ones during this difficult time.

JAL has an extensive history with the state of California, as the first international flight to San Francisco occurred over 60 years ago on February 2, 1954 and now includes daily flights to Los Angeles and San Diego. In addition, the Napa Valley Flight Training Center trained JAL pilots between the years of 1971 and 2010.

At this time, please be advised that the JAL Group will be donating USD 30,000 toward the wildfire relief fund.  In addition to this movement, the company will be accepting voluntary donations from all JAL Group staff around the globe. Details are as follows:


1)   JAL Group will donate USD30,000 toward the Napa Valley Community Foundation

2)     Voluntary donations received from JAL Group Staff will be added to the relief fund
