In a release, the Tokyo-based airline announced it will introduce three Boeing 767-300ER Freighters which will see the start of operations from the end of the fiscal year 2023.

“JAL has been securing revenues reliably and efficiently in the air cargo business, where demand fluctuates widely, through flexible business operations by using cargo space on passenger flights and chartering other companies' freighters in response to demand. However, with plans for further growth in the cargo and mail business, the company decided to operate its own freighters,” the airline said.

As part of the airline's new business model, the freighter aircraft will be used to capture domestic and international e-commerce, parcel delivery, and other high growth cargo, we will build alliances with logistics partners and operate routes that ensure stable demand. From fiscal 2023, the airline will be operating flights with the aircraft to East Asia, with domestic flights in the future to improve aircraft utilization while maximizing the cargo loading ratio.

“JAL will continue to contribute to the sustainable development of society through further growth of the cargo and mail business,” the airline added.
