Japan Airlines revises flight frequency and fleet plans

Japan Airlines (JAL) has made revisions to the flight frequency and fleet plans on both international and domestic routes for FY2019.

In regards to the airline’s network in Hawaii, JAL will seasonally feature first class service between Tokyo (Narita) and Honolulu during the year-end and New Year period.

Additionally, JAL will continue to expand the operation of the well-received JAL Sky Suite configured Boeing 787-9 aircraft on the Honolulu route.

On Japan domestic routes, the carrier will increase the frequency between Tokyo Haneda and Sapporo New Chitose, in line with the seasonal demand on this route.

Starting 1 September, 2019, JAL will operate the Airbus A350-900 (pictured above) aircraft from Tokyo Haneda to Fukuoka airport. In the following months, JAL will progressively introduce the aircraft on the Tokyo Haneda to Sapporo New Chitose and Tokyo Haneda to Okinawa (Naha) routes.

In addition, JAL plans to launch the carrier’s first domestic configured Boeing 787-8 aircraft between Tokyo (Haneda) and Osaka (Itami) starting 27 October, 2019. In December, the aircraft will also be introduced on the carrier’s Tokyo Haneda to Fukuoka route.

The following plans and schedules are subject to government approval.
