JAL to Launch Dedicated Freighter Service Using Boeing 767-300ER Aircraft Starting February 19, 2024

JAL Boeing 767-300ER Freighter

Japan Airlines (JAL) will commence operations of its cargo-only aircraft, converted from the Boeing 767-300ER model, from February 19, 2024.

The decision to operate its own dedicated cargo aircraft comes in anticipation of the so-called ‘2024 problem,’ which is the regulation of overtime hours for drivers, and the expected further growth of the domestic air cargo transport sector and the postal business. JAL will introduce three aircraft sequentially and deploy them primarily on international routes centered around East Asia. In the future, operations on domestic routes will also be considered to increase the utilization of equipment and maximize cargo load factors. Additionally, charter and extra flights will be available to meet customer needs. The introduction of dedicated cargo aircraft is the first in 13 years for JAL.

The operation schedule will link Tokyo/Narita and Nagoya/Chubu as bases, operating to Seoul/Incheon, Shanghai/Pudong, and Taipei/Taoyuan, and connecting with passenger flights.

The Boeing 767-300ER model can carry up to 32 tons (24 pallets) in the upper cargo compartment and 16 tons (3 pallets and 9 containers) in the lower cargo hold.
