EX­PAND­ING ROUTES

SP's Aviation - - CIVIL -

J-Air is a 100 per cent owned re­gional air­line sub­sidiary of Ja­pan Air­lines. J-Air has an­nounced that it would be ex­pand­ing the route of E190 pro­gres­sively on Itami-Sendai route and ItamiFukuoka routes. Ad­di­tion­ally, well­re­ceived ‘Class J’ ser­vice on do­mes­tic flights will be of­fered in JAL’s E190 fleet. Of the 95 seats, Econ­omy will com­prise 80 seats and ‘Class J’ ser­vice will of­fer 15 seats. J-Air is the first Ja­panese air­line to in­tro­duce E190 fleet.

Un­der the ban­ner ‘Em­brace New Chal­lenges’, JAL will fur­ther en­hance on-time per­for­mance ser­vice, and strengthen its re­gional net­work, in or­der to de­liver more con­ve­nience to cus­tomers with in­no­va­tive prod­ucts and high-qual­ity ser­vices.

In 2014, JAL Group had signed a firm or­der with Em­braer for a to­tal of 15 E-Jets com­pris­ing the E170 and the E190 jets mod­els, as well as for an ad­di­tional 12 E-Jets fam­ily op­tions.

E-Jets are de­signed from a dou­ble-bub­ble fuse­lage con­cept, which pro­vide cus­tomers with more in-flight space than the other same-size jet. Ad­di­tion­ally, E-Jets pow­ered with the re­li­able GE CF34 en­gines that pro­duce less noise and of­fer high level of op­er­a­tional ef­fi­ciency.

In­tro­duc­tion of E-Jets will en­able JAL to match ca­pac­ity with de­mand on each route, as well as achieve im­proved on­time per­for­mance and re­li­a­bil­ity. The air­line is look­ing for­ward to ex­pand­ing its re­gional net­work more ef­fi­ciently and strives to pro­vide cus­tomers with bet­ter con­ve­nience.
