About handling expired miles, e JAL Points, JAL Coupons (Last Updated Oct 1, 2020)

Thank you for your continued patronage of the JAL Group.

 

In response to the Coronavirus, we have suspended or reduced services on some JAL Group routes. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you.

 

In light of the unpredictable situation of the Coronavirus, in order to ensure continued access to the JAL Mileage Program with peace of mind, we will take the following special measures with regards to miles, e JAL Points, and JAL Coupons.

Handling of expiring miles and e JAL Points

 Miles and e JAL Points that have or will expire between February 2020 and December 31, 2020 (*) will be credited back to your account as e JAL Points that are valid for one year.

  • This special measure, which previously applied to miles and e JAL Points expiring on/before September 30, 2020, has been further extended to miles and e JAL Points expiring on/before December 31, 2020.
