Japan Airlines Announces Multiple Schedule and Route Changes
Japan Airlines announced changes to its domestic and international schedules, as well as changes in its fleet in the fiscal coming year.
The carrier will increase service between Tokyo Narita and Moscow’s Domodedovo International Airport from three to four weekly flights between March 27, 2016 and June 30, 2016, with five weekly flights being offered between July 1 and October 29 of this year.
JAL will also add flights to various domestic locations, with an extra daily flight to Okinawa, Asahikawa, and Hakodate from Tokyo Haneda, and two extra daily flights from Haneda to Aomori, as well as an additional daily flight between Osaka and Aomori. The changes will all be in effect by July.
At the same time, the carrier plans to decrease service on multiple routes, including one less daily flight from Fukuoka to Matsuyama, Miyazaki, and Kagoshima, as well as one less flight between Tokyo Haneda and Nagasaki. Additionally, service to Misawa from Osaka, Sapporo, and Tokyo Haneda will be suspended beginning July 20 due to runway maintenance work at Misawa Airport.
Additionally, the airline plans to transition to Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner service on its routes from Tokyo Narita to Delhi, Hong Kong, and Taipei, as well as from Tokyo Haneda to Beijing and Seoul this year.
