JAL Group: "During the reporting period of consolidated financial results for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2016, the Japanese economy maintained its moderate recovery and personal consumption remained robust in general. Overseas economics including the U.S. economy recovered in general, although weakness was observed in some areas such as China and emerging countries in Asia. On the other hand, the number of international visitors to Japan, which affects our passenger revenue, totaled 21,359 thousand in FY2015, representing a significant increase of 45.6% over the previous year. Fuel prices, which impact our fuel purchasing costs, international passenger revenue and international cargo revenue, were lower than they were the year before, but the JPY/USD foreign exchange rate continued to show weakness in the yen."
