Japan Airlines extends suspension of Narita-Paris flights through mid-March


Japan Airlines Co. said Wednesday it is extending a suspension of flights from Narita to Paris as demand remains slow following terror attacks there in November.

The airline earlier said it was canceling flights between Narita airport and Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport from Jan. 12 until the end of February. They will now be suspended until March 15, with flights to resume the following day.

“This is due to the decrease in demand after the terrorist attack,” JAL said in a brief statement.

The airline usually operates one flight a day from Narita to Paris.

The daily JAL flight from Haneda airport to Paris will continue as normal, it added.

Gunmen and suicide bombers acting in the name of the Islamic State group attacked cafes, restaurants, a concert hall and the national stadium in Paris on Nov. 13, leaving 130 dead and causing many tourists to cancel visits.
