Hokkaido Air System has become a subsidiary of Japan Airlines after the larger Japanese carrier completed a qualifying transaction to hold up to 51.2 per cent of the shares in HAC.
The HAC network includes flights to and from remote islands such as Sapporo (Okadama) on what is known as the Rishiri route and Hakodate and the Okushiri route.
With the success of this acquisition, JAL will support HAC to improve its sales performance and further strengthen its management competence as well.
After becoming a subsidiary of JAL, HAC will continually strive to be the most preferred and reliable regional airline in Hokkaido.
Japan Airlines will continue to enhance its network, the quality of products and services in order to provide customers with more convenience.
