The airline company Japan Airlines will launch a new link in the summer between Tokyo And Dohabecoming the first Japanese operator to serve the Middle East.

Few details in the announcement of July 18, 2023 by the Japanese national company, except that its base in Tokyo Haneda will be connected every day to the airport of Doha Hamad International in a Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner (three three-class configurations are available, with between 195 and 239 seats).

Japan Airlines will be in direct “competition” on this route with qatarairwaysits codeshare partner and in the alliance Oneworld (whose rotations will be retained), and indirectly with Emirates Airlines and Etihad Airways.

Its short press release also specifies that by launching this link, JAL “will allow its customers to connect in complete transparency to Africa and South America through its partnership with Qatar Airways. The JAL Group will continue to take on new challenges to provide greater comfort to its customers, strengthen its international network and continue to improve the quality of its products and services”.

The schedules of the line will be revealed later, subject to authorizations by the authorities.
