Responding to market conditions, the JAL Group (JAL) will make temporary adjustments to its international flight frequency and fleet plan for the second half of fiscal year 2009, the year ending March 31, 2010.
Flight frequency on two international routes – Tokyo (Narita) to Sao Paulo via New York, and Tokyo (Narita) to Shanghai, will be reduced for a short-term period of two to three months between January and March, 2010, when passenger demand on these routes is expected to be weak.
Capacity will also be lowered by means of downsizing the aircraft used on 3 other international routes between Tokyo and Beijing as well as Hong Kong for a similar length of time.
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.
