Peace of mind travel with free reservation changes (Extended until March 31, 2021)

Given the current situation where the removal of immigration restrictions in many countries cannot be foreseen, reservations may be changed free of charge, irrespective of the standard fare rules, on all current international fares so that our customers can travel with peace of mind.

This arrangement is also available on the JAL website, where you can both purchase and change tickets.


Please refer to the below link for more details on the latest flight schedule (suspension, reduction of flight frequency, schedule change and non-scheduled service).

Eligible Fares

All international fares issued between June 11, 2020 and March 31, 2021 (Standard, Saver, Special, Special Saver fare types).

  • Fares from Japan to New Caledonia/ from Indonesia to Japan are excluded.

About Changes

As an example, if you purchase a new ticket departing in August 2020, you are able to change the departure date to November or even later as many times as you like up to and including March 31, 2021 without paying change charges.

  • As a result of the change the applicable fare amount and/or rules may change. If the fare amount changes this amount will be payable.
  • If a fare with a restricted departure period was originally purchased and the date is subsequently changed to a date outside the permitted departure period a different fare will be applied and may result in a fare difference being charged as well as a change of fare rules.
  • If changes or cancellations are not made prior to the original flight departure the free change rule will not be applied.
  • Refunds will be permitted in line with the rules of the fare purchased.
