JAL and Yamato: cargo service from April 2024
Japan Airlines (JAL) and Yamato Holdings (YHD) have defined the routes and number of flights of a dedicated freighter aircraft, which is scheduled to start operating in April 2024, in order to secure stable transportation capacity, maintain and improve service quality, and solve social issues such as regional revitalisation. Both companies will continue to work towards the launch of the new service.
When all three Airbus A321ceo P2F aircraft are in operation from April 2024, the company plans to operate a total of 21 flights per day on the following four routes. The plan is subject to application to and approval by the relevant authorities: Tokyo (Narita/Haneda) = Kitakyushu, Tokyo (Narita/Haneda) = Sapporo (New-Chitose), Tokyo (Narita) – Okinawa (Naha) and Okinawa (Naha) – Kitakyushu.
