Japan Airlines to Debut New A350-1000 on Haneda–JFK Route

Japan Airlines declared today that as of January 24, 2024, it will start operating its new Airbus A350-1000 International aircraft on the Tokyo (Haneda) – New York (JFK) route (JL006/JL005).

Furthermore, by March 31, 2024, the end of Fiscal Year 2023, JAL is expected to receive its second aircraft, enabling daily A350-1000 operations on the same routes. Following the receipt of the third A350-1000, JAL has decided to extend the aircraft’s operational range to encompass the Tokyo (Haneda) – Dallas/Fort Worth route.


Customers flying on Japan Airlines‘ new A350-1000 aircraft will have access to brand-new interiors that offer a cosy and tranquil cabin environment. Additionally, compared to earlier international aircraft models, the environmentally friendly aircraft offers better fuel efficiency and lower noise levels.

The most recent fuel-efficient machinery allows for a 15–25% decrease in CO2 emissions. In addition, JAL intends to replace 1% of the fuel on board flights to Japan with Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) to further minimize environmental impact and reduce CO2 emissions in keeping with the expansion of the A350-1000 fleet.
