Japan Airlines (JAL) is cancelling three weekly freighter flights between Tokyo and London via Amsterdam from 25 October.

The thrice-weekly Tokyo-Frankfurt freighter service will also be amended from the same day to connect the two cities via Amsterdam, says the oneworld alliance member.

The carrier adds that it will use the belly space on its twice-daily Boeing 777 Tokyo-London passenger service to cater to cargo needs on the route.

On the passenger side, the carrier is cancelling services from Osaka-Kansai to Seoul's Incheon airport from 25 October. It will instead increase the number of services from Osaka-Kansai to Seoul's smaller Gimpo airport from seven weekly to 14 weekly from the same day. It will operate a Boeing 737-800 on the route.

"JAL is conducting an ongoing review of its passenger and cargo network, and is prepared to respond with further amendments to routes, fleet and flight frequencies in efforts to maximise profitability while maintaining high standards of service to our customers," says the carrier.
