JAL reorganizes international flight numbers beginning with FY2010

JAL reorganizes international flight numbers beginning with FY2010 ( TOKYO - Japan Airlines (JAL) announced today that it will reorganize the flight numbers of several of its international passenger flights from March 28, 2010 in preparation for the anticipated increase in traffic at Tokyo's two airports, Narita International Airport and Haneda Airport, upon the completion of their expansion.

The purpose of the revision is to make flight numbers of the JAL Group more comprehensible and easy to remember. JAL currently groups most international passenger flight numbers according to region, with a few exceptions. After the change, all flights will be correctly labeled with a number that demarcates the region it flies to.

Flights between Tokyo, Narita, and China, as well as Taiwan, will also bear new 3-digit flight numbers that start with the numeric 8, incidentally a number that is often considered auspicious in the Chinese culture.

For JAL flights operating at Haneda Airport, international flights will now carry 2-digit numbers, which will easily differentiate them from the domestic flights.

With effect from May 2, 2009, the new flight numbers will be used in the reservations of international flights in FY2010.

Organization of Flight Numbers:

North, South&Central America; Hawaii 1-99 No Change
Europe 400-499 No Change
Asia&Oceania, including Hong Kong 700-799 No Change
Korea&Guam 940-999 No Change

Tokyo, Narita – New Delhi 400-499 700-799
Tokyo, Narita – China&Taiwan 600-699 800-899
Tokyo, Haneda – All International Destinations 8000 ~ 1-99
(Currently China, Hong Kong&Korea)
Osaka, Kansai – Seoul, Gimpo 8000 ~ 940-999
