Japan Airlines Update
Japan Airlines in Apr-2017 is due to be free of business restrictions following its bankruptcy rehabilitation. JAL VP Akira Mitsumasu discusses JAL’s next business strategy, including supporting Japan’s increase in visitors, especially from Asia. JAL is planning new routes and new markets and will have double-digit ASK growth. JAL is also looking to grow its business outside of capacity expansion, and believes digital disruption will help JAL better understand its customers and become more relevant.
