Upgrading to Fuel-efficient Aircraft

The JAL Group is upgrading its fleet to more fuel-efficient aircraft in order to mitigate impacts of operations on the environment. In September 2019, we introduced the Airbus A350-900 on domestic routes, and in October 2019, we introduced the Boeing 787, which was in service on international routes since 2012, on domestic routes as well. In addition, from 2023, we will start introducing Airbus A350-1000 aircraft for international routes, and introduce Boeing 737-8 aircraft from 2026 as a replacement for the small aircraft Boeing 737-800 aircraft currently in operation. These aircraft are low-noise in addition to being fuel-efficient and are capable of providing CO2 emissions reductions of around 15 to 25% compared to conventional aircraft.
The JAL Group will continue to contribute to mitigate environmental impact through our planned program of upgrading to new aircraft types by utilizing funds procured through a public offering in fiscal 2020 and the SDG bonds, the world's first transition bond in the aviation industry, issued in March 2022 and issued its second in June 2023.
