Japanese airline Japan Airlines (JAL) canceled all flights to Russia, previously announced in the summer schedule.
JAL has previously announced the resumption of direct flights between Tokyo (Narita Airport) and Vladivostok and Moscow starting in April 2023.
“Due to the prolonged situation in Russia and Ukraine, we are not taking reservations as there are no plans to operate at this time. We will inform you separately when we operate,” says the statement.
Regular flights of JAL airliners to Russia were terminated due to the pandemic in March 2020, then the air carrier carried out only export flights in this direction. On April 23, 2021, the airline launched regular flights from Moscow to Tokyo – from Sheremetyevo airport to Haneda airport. From March 3, JAL suspended the booking of new tickets for weekly flights to Moscow, then canceled all previously announced flights, even with sold tickets.
After February 24, almost all international airlines left the Russian market. However, 40 international airlines still operate flights to Russia.
