JAL to Expand Cargo Transportation Network to Southern USA

Travel News Asia Thursday, 18 May 2006

JALs cargo network between Japan and southern USA will be expanded from June 3, 2006 with the launch of a new cargo transportation service called JAL Southern Flash.

Through a partnership with Florida West International Airways, JAL Southern Flash enables customers to ship their cargo by air between Japan and two new cities in southern USA: Dallas and Miami. Using this service, cargo is carried between either Tokyo, Narita or Nagoya, Centrair airports and Atlanta on JALCARGO flights; and transferred onto connecting Florida West cargo flights operating between Atlanta and either Dallas or Miami.

When compared to JALs current trucking services, JAL Southern Flash will reduce the amount of time it takes to transport freight between Atlanta and Dallas by 2 days, and between Atlanta and Miami by 1 day.

JAL has blocked a total of 80 tons space each way between Japan and the two new destinations per week to ensure that it can meet the needs of customers whatever size of freight they wish to transport. The airline expects to handle a total of 400 tons of cargo per month through the introduction of this new service.
