The JAL Group (JAL) has decided to reduce frequency of international flights that are primarily on routes with several service offerings a day, from July 1, 2009.In view of the slow recovery in air transport demand, JAL will strive to improve profitability by adjusting capacity.

In addition to these routes, the number of weekly flights from Tokyo (Narita) to Seoul (Incheon) and New Delhi, as well as from Osaka (Kansai) to Seoul (Incheon) and Shanghai (Pudong), will also be reduced for a short term period till the end of October 2009.
