Japan Airlines has announced that it will start a new service between Tokyo Narita and Vladivostok in summer 2020. In addition to Moscow Domodedovo, it will be the airline’s second destination in Russia.

The new route is scheduled to be operated on a daily basis during the summer season in 2020. The winter schedule will be announced at a later date.

Japan Airlines’ oneworld partner S7 Airlines already offers flights between the two airports. The carrier deploys Airbus A320/A320neo jets on the route. Furthermore, Aurora Airlines, a subsidiary of Aeroflot, operates a daily service from the Russian city to Tokyo. Japan Airlines plans to operate with Boeing 737-800 aircraft on the flight to the Vladivostok.

The Japanese airline used to be an all-Boeing operator with fleet of Boeing 737, 767, 777 and 787 Dreamliner aircraft. In June, the carrier took delivery of its first Airbus A350-900 jet, which became the carrier’s first Airbus airplane that has been directly delivered to the airline. In addition to the A350s, Japan Airlines ordered Mitsubishi Regional Jets with deliveries expected to start in 2020.
