The JAL Group announced today, revisions to the route and flight frequency plan for its domestic passenger operations for the second half of FY2009. From January 5, 2010, the JAL Group will establish a new domestic route between Tokyo (Narita) and Okinawa.
From Narita International Airport - Japan’s main international gateway in Tokyo, JAL currently operates feeder flights to key cities, namely Osaka (Kansai and Itami), Sapporo, Nagoya and Fukuoka.
