JAL Group International Traffic in 2005 Golden Week Vacation Period

TOKYO April22,2005: The traditional Japanese “GOLDEN WEEK'' vacation period, stretching this year from April 28 to May 8, is forecast to yield positive results for JAL Group airlines. The number of international passengers is presently up by 6.5% on the same period in 2004, demonstrating a healthy growth in demand.

International passenger reservations during the 11-day period, made up by a combination of public holidays and weekends, currently stands at 212,479 in total, up 6.5% on the same vacation period last year. The forecast seat load factor is 63.6%. Last year in the same period the JAL Group carried 199,495 international Golden Week passengers.

Due to the length of this year's Golden Week, long-haul international routes operated by JAL and its subsidiaries, Japan Asia Airways (JAA) and JALways (JAZ), are experiencing increases in demand across the board with the exception of Oceania and Pacific resort routes. Transpacific, Korea and Europe routes have significant increases in passenger bookings and are up respectively by 18%, 15.5% and 12.2% when compared to the same period last year. Anxieties resulting from anti-Japanese demonstrations in China have not deterred passengers from planning to travel there, with passenger reservations up 4% when compared to the same period last year.

Domestic picture

JAL Group domestic Golden Week passenger reservations total 1,398,716, 3.6% up on the same vacation period last year. JAL Group plans to operate an additional 39 flights on domestic Japan routes to accommodate this increased demand. At present the domestic Japan seat load factor forecast is 65.4%.
