JAL suspends Narita-Paris flights from January

Travel News 01 Jan 2016

JAPAN Airlines (JAL) is suspending daily flights from Tokyo's Narita International Airport to Paris after demand fell roughly 60% in the aftermath of the terror attacks on the French capital in November. The daily flight will be suspended from January 12 and a decision will be made in February whether to extend the measure or to resume regular operations.

Load factors were down as much as 30% as passengers cancelled their holidays immediately after the November 13 attacks in Paris. Bookings for later in the year were also down.

The load factor on flights to Paris from Haneda has also fallen, by 40%, and JAL intends to continue serving the French capital from Tokyo's second airport.
