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.
