JAL expands routes in China and the US

Travel News 01 Sep 2015

Japan Airlines has announced plans to expand its network in the US and China. 

Its trans-Pacific expansion will commence on 30 November 2015 with the launch of flights from Tokyo Narita Airport to Dallas. This new route will initially be operated four times a week (Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays) using a Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner aircraft. JAL will then increase the frequency to daily flights in spring 2016.

The Narita-Dallas route will form part of JAL’s trans-Pacific joint venture with American Airlines, which will codeshare on the services.

Meanwhile, JAL has also announced plans to expand and revise its Chinese network. From 25 October 2015, the airline will add new direct Boeing 767 flights from Tokyo Haneda Airport to Shanghai and Guangzhou. It will also double the frequency of its Haneda-Beijing route to two flights per day.

The launch of the new Guangzhou route however, will lead to the suspension of JAL’s existing flights from Narita to the southern Chinese city, while the extra Beijing flight will also come at the expense of one daily flight on the Narita-Beijing route.
