Temporary Resumption of Full JAL Indonesia Services Over New Year Vacation Period

Tokyo, Thursday November 24: JAL will temporarily resume normal international flight services between Japan and Indonesia over the New Year vacation period due to an expected upturn in passenger demand.

JAL reduced flight frequency and changed routings on its Japan-Indonesia flights at the end of October, following a significant decrease in passenger demand from Japan resulting from the terrorist bombing on Bali Island on October 1, 2005.

JAL amalgamated its daily direct flights from Tokyo to Denpasar and Jakarta into a Narita-Jakarta-Denpasar-Narita routing. At the same time, JAL reduced its Osaka-Denpasar service from seven to three flights per week, and will suspend the service December 22 - 26.

Over the New Year vacation period, JAL will resume full operation of the three daily direct services it normally offers passengers between Japan and Indonesia. From December 22, 2005 to January 9, 2006, passengers will be able to travel daily from Tokyo (Narita) to either Denpasar (Bali) or Jakarta direct.

Daily service between Osaka (Kansai) and Denpasar will once again be available from December 27 to January 4. However, all the flights will be affected by route and frequency changes after these periods. For full details please see below.

JAL is constantly monitoring passenger demand on these routes and hopes to return services to normal as soon as feasibly possible.
