Tokyo, September 10, 2009: The JAL Group announced today, revisions made to a portion of its international passenger, and cargo route and flight frequency plan for the second half of FY2009.

The planned reduction in flight frequency between Osaka (Kansai) and Seoul (Incheon) that was announced last month will be modified; from an initial reduction of 14 weekly flights to 7, the service will now be discontinued and replaced with an increase in operation to Seoul’s other airport, Gimpo International Airport. With effect from October 25, 2009, 7 flights a week scheduled to operate with the Boeing 737-800 will be added to the Osaka (Kansai)-Seoul (Gimpo) route, raising the weekly flight frequency from 7 to 14.
