Japan Airlines on Wednesday announced details of its international network expansion from Tokyo-Narita International Airport next year. The expansion includes a double-daily service over the Pacific on its San Francisco route by adding a new nonstop to Narita, and a second flight to Guam “for customers seeking to relax at the popular resort destination,” JAL said in a press release.
Reservations and sales for these flights will start on Nov. 6.
JAL will also introduce new routes to Vladivostok, Russia at the end of February and Bengaluru, India in March.
Service to Vladivostok will begin on Feb. 28, and through March 28, 2020, the route will operate three times a week. From March 29, the carrier will operate daily through summer schedule 2020. Vladivostok is just a two-hour flight from Narita airport and JAL`s flight schedule is designed to offer customers ample time for exploring the city even on the day of arrival.
Service to Bengaluru will begin on March 29, 2020. The route to southern India, popularly known as "India's Silicon Valley" will not only connect customers between Japan and India, but also provide convenient connections to/from North America via Narita.
Double-daily service from Tokyo to San Francisco will begin on March 29, 2020. By setting a convenient new Narita schedule, the carrier aims to provide smooth connections for business and leisure customers seeking to travel throughout Asia. The service is in addition to the airline`s current Haneda-San Francisco daily flight to provide customers with more travel choices between Japan and North America.
As travel demand continues to remain strong to Guam, JAL will add a second daily flight from July 1, 2020. The route will feature the JAL Sky Suite configured aircraft, which have been well received by customers and features the airline`s latest in-flight seats and amenities.
JAL said the airline group will continue to refine its route network and aims to become one of the most preferred and valued airlines in the world. The following plans and schedules are based on the approvals from the relevant authorities.
