The JAL Group (JAL) has made a short-term adjustment to its FY2009 Route, Flight Frequency and Fleet Plan. The change follows the announcement by the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism (MLIT) of Japan on April 10, 2009, to increase the landing slots at Tokyo's Haneda Airport for an impermanent period as one of the measures to support Japan's airline industry during the current difficult economic environment.

Utilizing the new landing slots offered by MLIT, JAL will commence additional flights from Tokyo, Haneda to Hiroshima from May 8, to May 31, 2009, and following that, from Tokyo, Haneda to Fukuoka from June 1, to June 30, 2009. For the respective periods, flights between Haneda and Hiroshima will increase from 7 daily flights to 8 and between Haneda and Fukuoka from 19 daily flights to 20.

JAL will continue using the supplement slots provided, from July till the end of October 2009. Details of the additional flights for this period are expected to be confirmed by the end of this month.

Also in response to the enduring effects of the global economic crisis that has lowered the demand for international travel, for the period of June 1 to October 24, 2009, flights from Tokyo, Narita to Delhi will be reduced from once daily to 4 times a week.

JAL said it would offer alternative flights and dates to passengers who have already made reservations on the flights subjected to change.
