SYDNEY--Japan Airlines Co. Ltd. (JAL) is operating at 65 percent of its international capacity before the coronavirus pandemic, although COVID-19 curbs are limiting demand to just about 40 percent of pre-pandemic levels, an airline executive said on Tuesday.
In the domestic market, the airline is operating at 100 percent of its pre-pandemic capacity, though demand is about 80 percent of corresponding levels, said Akihide Yoguchi, JAL’s vice president of strategy research for the Asia Oceania region.
“Demand for domestic has recovered faster than international, like many other markets,” he said at a CAPA Centre for Aviation conference.
