Japan Airlines suspends Paris service after attacks

15 Dec 2015 by Alex McWhirter

Japan Airlines will suspend flights between Tokyo Narita and Paris Charles de Gaulle next month.

The move follows a substantial drop in passenger numbers since last month's terror attacks in the French capital, reports The Express Tribune.

In the case of Tokyo Narita, a JAL spokesperson said that passenger volumes have declined by 60 per cent. Tokyo Haneda is not so badly affected, with a slightly more modest 40 per cent decline.

JAL will suspend its Tokyo Narita-Paris flights on most days between January 12 and February 29. A decision will be taken later on whether to extend the flight suspension further.

Passengers booked to Narita will be rebooked to Haneda.

It remains to be seen whether or not other regional airlines will follow JAL's lead.

Earlier this month, it emerged that JAL will increase its Tokyo Narita-Dallas/Fort Worth service to daily in March (see news, December 1).
