Traffic on transpacific routes to Hawaii, the mainland of North America and Korea was good, either matching or exceeding last year's results (see chart). Load factors were high on routes from Japan to Hawaii (81.9%), the mainland USA (91.7%) and Oceania (86.3%). On the downside, demand to beach resort destinations in Southeast Asia routes was below last year, reflecting the slow recovery of Japanese traffic since the December 2004 tsunami. Traffic to China was also down on last year (-6.5%), due to the lingering effect of anti-Japanese demonstrations in April this year.

JAL operated 34 extra flights on Pacific resort routes and additionally made a total of 152 tourist charter flights (106 more than in the 2004 vacation season) including some to new destinations such as Prague, St. Petersburg and Alice Springs, Australia, as well as to resort spots such as Hawaii, Guam and Palau.
