JAL Reduces Flight Frequency on International Routes

Tokyo, June 15, 2009: The JAL Group (JAL) has decided to reduce the frequency of international flights that are primarily on routes with several service offerings a day, from July 1, 2009.

 

In view of the slow recovery in air transport demand, JAL will strive to improve profitability by adjusting capacity. It will maintain the reduced flight frequency on routes to Beijing, Shanghai (Pudong), Hong Kong and Taipei, which were decreased in the period of March to June 2009, for a new term from July 1, 2009. In addition to these routes, the number of weekly flights to Seoul (Incheon) and New Delhi from Tokyo (Narita), as well as from Osaka (Kansai) to Shanghai (Pudong) and Seoul (Incheon), will also be reduced for a short term period till the end of October 2009. Please refer to the table below for more details.

 

JAL aims to respond sensitively to current market situations 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.
