Japan Airlines today announced revisions to flight frequency and fleet plans on both international and domestic routes for fiscal year 2016 (ending March 31, 2017).
In regards to the airline’s international network, Japan Airlines will increase flight frequency between Tokyo Narita and Honolulu, and between Narita and Bangkok to meet growing demand for those routes.
Japan Airlines’ Sky Suite configured aircraft, the Boeing 777-200ERs, are currently operated on Tokyo Haneda – Bangkok and Haneda – Singapore routes, and this newly revamped aircraft will be introduced on Haneda – Hong Kong, and Haneda/Osaka Kansai/Nagoya Chubu – Honolulu routes progressively.
Furthermore, to meet customer demand, JAL will introduce First Class service during year-end and new-year period (between December 28, 2016 and January 8, 2017) on its Haneda – Honolulu route with the Sky Suite 777 (Boeing 777-300ER).
In order to further improving domestic products and services, JAL will continue to expand its JAL Sky Next service onto all domestic routes operated by Boeing 777-300, Boeing 777-200, Boeing 767-300 and Boeing 737-800 fleets.
In addition, from the second-half of FY2016, the group will change Hokkaido Air System, a subsidiary of Japan Airlines, flight indicator from “HC” to “JL” to increase customer convenience.
