Bengaluru, Jan 23: Japan Airlines Limited (JAL) today announced that it will launch a new nonstop service between Tokyo-Narita and Bangalore, during the summer of 2020.
As direct flights are currently not in service from Japan, the launch of this route will provide customers from North America a new option when traveling to the southern region of India. Through the expansion of JAL`s international network, the carrier looks to contribute to further development and economic growth in both countries.
In order to realize the JAL Vision 1, as introduced in the JAL Group Medium Term Management Plan, the carrier will continue expanding its network in order to become the world’s most valued and preferred airline, a company release said here on Wednesday. Takayuki Kitagava, Consul-General of Japan in Bengaluru in his reaction said, “I am very pleased to see this development.
The launch of non-stop flights from Bengaluru to Tokyo (Narita) will herald a new era of more strengthened economic relation between Karnataka and Japan. With this development not only will tourism flourish in Karnataka and Japan but also many new businesses will be established; thereby creating lots of new opportunities".
The new flight service will enable people to travel not just to Tokyo but also to many cities in the US easily, he said in a statement here. (UNI)
