Japan Air Lines (JAL) has announced that following the introduction of new B767 freighters this summer, it will launch cargo flights to Tianjin and Qingdao from July 2007 and to Jakarta from October 2007.

During the coming year JAL will also retire older B747 freighters and increase the number of B747-400Fs in its fleet. By operating B747-400F aircraft on US West Coast routes, JAL will discontinue stopovers at Anchorage, Alaska and will fly non-stop in order to shorten time and reduce costs. On US East Coast routes, on certain days, flight frequency and transit airports have been reviewed and the number of B747-200Fs has been reduced, the Japanese airline added.
