Japan Airlines Orders 32 New Airbus and 10 New Boeing Planes

Japan Airlines Will Introduce 42 New Planes from Airbus and Boeing. Accelerating International Network Growth With Advanced Fuel-Efficient Aircraft

Japan Airlines (JAL) plans to renew its fleet by acquiring 21 Airbus A350-900s, 11 A321neos, and 10 Boeing 787-9s planes. The A350s will be added to its international routes, augmenting its current A350 domestic operations.

Additionally, JAL will acquire an extra Airbus A350-900 to replace one lost in January 2024.

Notably, despite the debut of JAL’s opulent new A350-1000 long-haul experience, the airline is banking on the Boeing Dreamliner for its long-haul routes. With a significant Boeing 787 Dreamliner fleet already, JAL aims to further grow with an additional 10 Boeing 787-9s.

The airline’s expansion focus is on North America, Asia, and India. JAL’s goal is to increase its network capacity by about 1.4 times by 2030, enhancing service while also reducing CO2 emissions. These new aircraft will be introduced gradually over six years, starting from fiscal year 2027.

JAL’s New Aircraft For Domestic Flights

Japan Airlines (JAL) plans to upgrade its domestic fleet by introducing 21 Boeing 737-8 aircraft starting in 2026, replacing the older Boeing 737-800 models. They will also add 11 new Airbus A321neo aircraft—their first time using this model—expected to serve routes from Haneda Airport beginning in 2028.

JAL Group is focused on reducing CO2 emissions by adopting more fuel-efficient aircraft. The company aims to cut emissions by 10% from 2019 levels by 2030 and strives for near-zero emissions by 2050.
