The JAL Group has announced modifications to its International Flight Plans for the FY2023 Winter Schedule, originally published in August. These latest changes include adjusting services on specific routes to Hawaii, Guam (set to kick off in December), and a few East Asian hotspots.
The upswing in leisure travel demand and the robust inbound interest in Japan, spurred by the favorable Japanese Yen exchange rates, means the airline is adjusting its flight offerings to address demand while improving passenger convenience.
- For the New Year holidays, travelers can opt for one of the 3 weekly flights on the Narita – Kona trajectory. This move pushes the total number of Japan Airlines flights between Japan and Hawaii to 33 per week, encompassing:
- 14 flights departing from Haneda,
- 7 from Narita,
- 5 from Kansai, and
- 4 from Nagoya (Chubu), all en route to Honolulu.
- The Narita – Guam route will also undergo a boost during the New Year holidays, increasing from 4 flights each week to daily operations.
- From October 29, the airline plans to bump up the flight frequency on the Narita – Hong Kong route from 5 to 7 flights weekly.
- The airline will also double the Narita – Taipei (Taoyuan) route flights from 7 to 14 each week.
- Additionally, seasonal flights are in the pipeline for the Kansai – Taipei (Taoyuan) route, expected to run 4 times a week.
- This frequency uptick will span from October 29, 2023, to December 27.
- The boost will last from October 29, 2023, to November 30.
- Operations for these flights will be between October 29, 2023, and January 8, 2024.
