JAL Group Announces Consolidated Financial Results for Third Quarter of Fiscal Year 2020

The JAL Group today announced the consolidated financial results for the third quarter of FY2020. Beginning this fiscal year, the Company will apply IFRS (International Financial Reporting Standards) to the consolidated financial results. In order to make a comparative analysis, IFRS will be applied to the figures from FY2019.

1) JAL Group Consolidated Results for the Period April 1, 2020 - December 31, 2020
Due to the global impact of COVID-19, the business environment has been extremely challenging for the airline industry. In response to the sharp decrease in international and domestic travel demand, the carrier continued to reduce variable and fixed costs to counteract the significant decrease in revenue. However, operating revenue decreased to 356.5 billion yen, down 68.0% year-over-year, EBIT recorded a loss of 294.1 billion yen, and profit/loss figures recorded a loss of 212.7 billion yen.

As strict travel and quarantine restrictions continue to be imposed on a global scale, international passenger demand decreased 96.6% and international passenger revenue recorded 18.8 billion yen, down 95.3% year-on-year. Domestic passenger demand in Japan gradually recovered, especially in leisure demand, since the government sponsored Go to Travel promotional campaign included the city of Tokyo from October 2020. However, due to the increasing number of COVID-19 cases reported in December, the government temporarily suspended the Go to Travel campaign during the year-end holidays, resulting in lower domestic passenger demand. As a result, domestic passenger demand decreased 66.7% and domestic passenger revenue recorded 136.9 billion yen, down 68.0% year-on-year. In order to maximize its revenue stream, the JAL Group continued to support domestic and global cargo logistics by utilizing passenger aircraft. As a result, cargo revenue increased 31.5% year-on-year, recording 90.9 billion yen.
