JAL introduces three freighters for the first time in 13 years

Japan Airlines (JAL/JL) has announced that it has introduced three Boeing 767-300ER freighter aircraft, marking the first time in 13 years that the company has owned dedicated cargo planes. The decision was made to strengthen partnerships with Yamato Holdings, one of the largest logistics companies in Japan, and achieve stable profits in the cargo airline business. JAL aims to secure its role in long-distance transportation in Japan and mitigate business risks caused by demand and market fluctuations by owning its own dedicated freighters. The planes will initially be deployed on international routes focused on East Asia and gradually on domestic routes as well while also maximizing cargo capacity through charter and ad hoc flights according to demand.
