Japan Airlines has postponed the launch of its four times weekly Tokyo Narita-Helsinki service that was originally planned for 25 February.

The carrier attributed the decision to adjustments made to its international routes originally served using Boeing 787s. The aircraft type was grounded by Japan's transport ministry on 17 January, following a directive issued by the US Federal Aviation Administration.

A new launch date will be announced at a later time, says the carrier.
