In response to COVID-19, we have suspended or reduced services on some JAL Group routes. 

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you. We are implementing the following measures for miles, e JAL Points, and JAL Coupons. We hope these measures will provide the flexibility for you to use your miles, e JAL Points, and JAL Coupons for JAL Group flights.

Handling of expiring miles and e JAL Points

If you have miles or e JAL Points that expire between March 31, 2022 and September 30, 2022

  • Customers with miles or e JAL Points that expire on February 28, 2022 who register in advance by February 28, 2022 will be credited e JAL Points that are valid until October 31, 2022. These e JAL Points will be credited to accounts around mid March.
