Passengers flying with Japan Airlines (JAL) will be able to watch a new version of its in-flight safety video from September 1.
The new version of the safety video, with a focus on “concrete and realistic images to promote safety”, is part of an effort by JAL to introduce specific measures to “Rebuild Safety and a Sense of Security”, according to the airline.
The Japanese carrier has updated its in-flight safety video for the first time in 13 years, according to Nikkei.
The airline says that the video draws on actual incidents that have happened across the airline industry. It highlights potential risks inside the cabin and provides instructions on what to do during an emergency aircraft evacuation. The video also shows scenarios that could happen if appropriate action is not taken by passengers during a flight or in an emergency.
The safety video will be available in 13 different languages, including Japanese, English, Traditional and Simplified Chinese, Thai, Indonesian, Vietnamese, Malay, Korean, Russian, Hindi, French, as well as German.
In October, the Japanese carrier will update its in-flight entertainment (IFE) programme to allow passengers to review the general safety guidelines and rules on etiquette on their personal monitors, however this update does not apply to some aircraft types used on short domestic routes because they are not equipped with IFE service.
In other news, JAL customers travelling on domestic routes should be aware that the security check cut-off time for domestic flights will be changed from 15 minutes to 20 minutes before departure from October 27 this year. The Japanese flag carrier has also unveiled new uniform designs which will be adopted starting April next year.
