Japan Airlines To Order 42 New Jets

Both Airbus and Boeing have bagged orders for new aircraft from Japan Airlines (JAL). As part of its fleet renewal plan, Japan’s flag carrier will purchase 21 A350-900s and 11 A321neos from Airbus and 10 787-9 Dreamliners from Boeing. Simple math reveals the order for 42 new aircraft.

Of the 21 A350-900s, JAL plans to put 20 on international routes from FY2027 and 1 on domestic from FY2025. The latter will take the place of the aircraft that the airline lost in January 2024. The 787-9s from Boeing, however, will all serve the airline’s overseas network from FY2027. The single-aisle A321neos, ordered for the first time by the Japanese carrier, will strengthen the domestic network from FY2028. JAL also awaits the delivery of 21 Boeing 737-8s, which should join the fleet from FY2026.

In December last year, JAL took delivery of its first Airbus A350-1000.
