JAPAN Airlines, a member of the JAL Group, transported 34,271 tons of cargo on international routes in August, representing a decrease of 4.5 per cent compared to the same month last year. It also carried 2,151 tons of international mail during this period.
Domestic cargo volumes declined by 10 per cent year on year to 29,978 tons, but this air freight supplemented by 2,274 tons of mail carried on domestic services, reported London's Air Cargo News.
In August, JAL and Kalitta Air received the go-ahead to add a new cargo codeshare on services between Chicago and Tokyo Narita, via Anchorage.
The US-based carrier will now be able to display the JL designator code on its freighter flights through to May 31 2020, and the partners may extend the agreement beyond that date.
