Getting to and from Asia gets a little simpler thanks to a new network expansion from Japan Airlines.
Japan Airlines’ latest expansion brings more service to Tokyo (NRT). The biggest addition is a twice-daily flight to San Francisco (SFO). The new service kicks off in March as a result of a partnership with American Airlines. The addition complements JAL’s current Tokyo (HND)–San Francisco offerings.
The expansion also adds flights to Guam, Russia and India from Narita. The airline adds a second daily flight to Guam (GUM) and new flights to Vladivostok (VVO) and Bengaluru (BLR).
“We are dedicated to route growth, while ensuring customers are able to experience our world-renowned service and hospitality,” said Kiyoto Morioka, senior vice president of the Americas, Japan Airlines.
All the new flights will be in full operation by the beginning of July 2020.
