JAL: Changes for flights to Ho Chi Minh City and North America

JAL Group (JAL) announced today revised flight schedules from the second half of FY2014 in order to strengthen the airline’s international network due to expected growth of demand on its North America-Asia routes, and also to improve transit convenience to/from the airline’s domestic network within Japan. The changes and customers’ benefits include:

Tokyo (Narita) = Boston
The departure time from Tokyo (Narita) to Boston will be changed from late morning to evening.

As a result, accessibility between cities throughout Asia and Boston (via Narita) will greatly improve as the number of same-day connections will increase from seven cities (*1) to 15 cities (*2).

Tokyo (Narita) = Ho Chi Minh City
The flight arrival time at Tokyo (Narita) will be changed from early morning to afternoon.

Thus, the airline will offer increased connection opportunities to customers, particularly to the U.S. West Coast, within an approximate four hour time period, from JAL’s Ho Chi Minh City to Tokyo (Narita) flight from currently three cities (Chicago, Boston and New York) to seven cities adding Dallas/Ft. Worth (*3), Los Angeles, San Diego and Vancouver.

Tokyo (Haneda) = San Francisco
The flight arrival time at Tokyo (Haneda) will be changed to early morning instead of evening.
