Japan Airlines to launch 3 new cargo jets

For the first time in more than a decade, Japan Airlines plans to introduce three new cargo jets, seeking to diversify revenue by exploring the global and local consumer demand fueled by e-commerce and parcel delivery.

Three new Boeing 767 - 300 ER dedicated cargo aircraft will operate starting this fiscal year, which ends in March 2024, the company said in a statement. Until now, the airline has operated its cargo operations using space on passenger flights and chartering other companies freighters.

Japan Airlines is also anticipating more demand for cargo transport, owing to new regulations that will limit the number of hours truck drivers in Japan are allowed to work. The new regulations are seen as a disruption in logistics and supply chains as factories, homes and businesses find fresh ways for transporting goods and finished products.
