Japan Airlines (JAL) announced revisions to its flight frequency plans for October, with continued flight cancellations on the Guam-Tokyo route through October 31, 2020, in the face of COVID-19.

The airline had previously suspended Guam flights until September 30, which was already an extension from its previous July 31st suspension date.

In its news release, the airline said, “as the virus still lingers, let’s put forth our contributions by following guidelines and assisting with the containment of the spread.”

They also say October 1 marks the 50th anniversary of the Guam-Tokyo route and though they wish they had flights in the air to celebrate the day, COVID-19 continues to hinder their movement.


“For now, let’s hope for an early vanquishment of the virus and let’s proceed with safety pre-caution [sic] measures at all times. We will continue to keep you updated as we move along.”
