JAL Group Revises FY2018 & FY2019 International and Domestic Flight Frequency and Fleet Plans

Japan Airlines (JAL) today announced revisions to the flight frequency and fleet plans on both international and domestic routes for FY2018 and on select international routes for FY2019.

In regards to the airline’s international network, JAL will increase capacity on its Hawaii and East Asia routes in response to the demand in each market. The airline will seasonally operate the Boeing 777-300ER aircraft, featuring First Class service, during the year-end and New Year period on the Tokyo (Narita) = Honolulu route, which was provided during the same period last year. Additionally, JAL will continue to expand the operation of the well-received JAL SKY SUITE 1 configured Boeing 787-9 aircraft on routes between Japan and Hawaii.

In FY2019, JAL will seasonally increase flights between Tokyo (Narita) = Chicago (O’hare) from June 8 to September 3, 2019, featuring 11 flights per week. On flights between Osaka (Kansai) = Los Angeles, JAL will now feature full-flat seats in Business Class, in addition to the introduction of Premium Economy Class service with the JAL SKY SUITE 787-9 aircraft. Meanwhile, due to the change in demand, the airline will decrease the flight frequency between Kansai = Taipei (Taoyuan) from March 31, 2019.

On Japan domestic routes, JAL will increase the flight frequency between Tokyo (Haneda) = Sapporo (New Chitose) and Tokyo (Haneda) = Okinawa (Naha) in line with the seasonal demand on these routes. On Kagoshima routes, the carrier will feature the new ATR 72-600 aircraft from December 2018. Additionally, the airline will start broadcasting "Live TV Service" as a new in-flight service from October 2018 on Japan domestic flights.

The JAL Group will continue to embrace new challenges to deliver greater customer convenience and comfort, enhance its networks, and improve the quality of its products and services.

The following plans and schedules are subject to government approval.
