ANA and JAL to revise summer schedules for international flights - Business Traveller

Japanese carriers ANA and Japan Airlines (JAL) have made temporary changes to their summer schedules starting March 29 until late April amid the Covid-19 pandemic.

As of March 26, ANA said a total of 3,638 flights serving 68 different routes from March 29 until April 24 will be affected by the temporary service adjustments, which will include service suspensions and reductions.

The airline said it initially planned to serve a total of 4,653 flights serving 72 routes during this period.

According to The Japan Times, the Japanese government imposed tougher border control measures on March 9, banning tourists from China and South Korea from entering the country until the end of the month and limiting flights from China and South Korea to two airports — Tokyo Narita International Airport or Kansai International Airport. ANA said the schedules for services to China and South Korea after April 8 may change should this measure is extended.
