JAL to strike to maximise revenue and minimise expenses to maintain lean structure in 2013

2-Jan-2013 7:54 AM

Japan Airlines (JAL) president Yoshiharu Ueki stated (01-Jan-2013) the carrier will "continue pressing forward this year to improve our products and services in an effort to become our customers' most preferred and favored airline in the world". From Jan-2013, the carrier's international fleet of Boeing 777-300ER aircraft, refitted with new seats, will operate on European and North American routes. Simultaneously, the carrier is evolving its in-flight meal service. JAL will add another destination to its list of 787 routes with the launch of Tokyo Narita-Helsinki service in Feb-2013. Financially, the JAL Group will "strive to maximize revenue and minimize expenses to maintain a lean and strong business structure, so that we can achieve our financial targets in an ever-changing operating environment, anchored firmly on the premise of ensuring flight safety – the basis of the JAL Group and our social responsibility, as we aim to become the leading company of safety in the transport sector".
