JAL removes freighter flights to save money


Japan Airlines’ cargo arm will suspend scheduled freighter flights at the end of October this year, the carrier said last week.

In order to cut costs, JAL said JALCARGO would solely use the cargo belly space of its passenger flights which provide cargo capacity approximately three times the volume of its freighter flights.

The carrier said market conditions for international cargo business is expected to remain severe and the new cargo business structure aimed to secure a stable profit and boost the recovery of JAL’s financial standing.

JAL will continue its cargo business on 508 weekly passenger flights plying 56 international routes, and on 134 domestic routes with 904 daily one-way flights.
