JAL Revises FY2009 Route and Frequency Plan

TokyoFebruary 27, 2009: The JAL Group (JAL) has decided to make revisions to part of the Route, Flight Frequency and Fleet Plan for FY2009. The plan, which was announced earlier last month on January 28, 2009, will see changes made to five of its international passenger flight routes for short term periods in the fiscal year ending March 31, 2010.

 

Flights on the route to Korea, Incheon from Tokyo, Narita will be increased for a short term period of seven months from March 29, 2009 to meet the stronger demand expected primarily from passengers in Japan, backed by the advantage of a strong yen rate and by the reduction in fuel surcharge.

 

On the other hand, from March 29, 2009, flights on four international routes will be reduced for a short term period ranging from two to three months, when passenger demand is expected to be weak in view of the unremitting global economic crisis.

 

JAL aims to respond more sensitively to current market situations in order to improve profitability, and appreciates the understanding and support of its customers. For customers who have already made reservations on flights that are subject to the change, alternative JAL flights with different timings will be offered.
