JAL GROUP SUBSIDIARY J AIR FLIGHT NUMBERS TO CHANGE TO JAL
December 27 Tokyo: The JAL Group announced today that flights by domestic subsidiary commuter airline J-Air will carry JAL flight numbers from April 1st 2005. Additionally, the commuter airline will take delivery of two more CRJ-200 aircraft during FY2005 to meet the needs of the airline¡Çs expanding route network.
With the opening of Chubu International Airport (Centrair) serving the Nagoya area in February 2005 the JAL Group will move international operations and most domestic flights to the new facility from the present Nagoya Airport at Komaki. However J-Air will continue to base its domestic commuter services at Komaki.
The JAL Group will add two more CRJ-200 aircraft to the J-Air fleet during 2005 increasing the fleet from the present six aircraft to eight in line with J-Air route network expansion. The change of J-Air flight numbering to JAL is aimed at improving customer convenience by strengthening the recognition of the JAL brand on domestic commuter flights operated by JAL Group subsidiary carriers.
