Typhoon Faxai 2019 Relief Effort Miles

The JAL Group extends its deepest sympathy to those affected by Typhoon Faxai (Typhoon No. 15) which hit the Kanto region on September 7-9, causing massive damage to homes, widespread blackouts, water outages and other devastation in Chiba Prefecture and elsewhere in the region.

To assist the effort for quick recovery, the JAL Group has decided to offer support and assistance through donation. We also ask for cooperation from JMB members to support the people affected by Typhoon Faxai through Charity Miles.
