JAL's Guam route remains suspended, planned second daily flight canceled
Japan Airlines has cancelled its earlier plan to add a second daily flight between Guam and Narita.
The plan, which was announced in late 2019, was supposed to feature the airlines' Sky Suite configured aircraft and was scheduled to take flight in July 2020 but was grounded due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
The carrier's Guam service remains suspended until Sept. 30.
JAL announced additional revisions to its international network plans through September 30, 2021. This revision includes international destinations, which were not included during the previous announcement on April 1.
Based on the company`s new medium-term management plan released today, Japan Airlines made the decision to suspend scheduled service between Narita-Busan and Narita-Kaohsiung. In addition, the carrier will reduce service between Narita-Honolulu and Narita-Taipei, suspend the launch of the Narita-Chicago O`Hare route, and cancel plans to add a second daily flight between Narita and Guam.
The carrier said it will continue to review travel restrictions within each destination and update its international network plan, while asking for customer`s understanding during this unprecedented time.
The Japanese government announced plans to expand the Covid-19 state of emergency beyond Tokyo and the Osaka area and extend it to the end of May in a bid to bring down infections and ease the strain on hospitals.
