June 2006: Japan Airlines (JAL) at a meeting in Paris, received a formal invitation to join the Oneworld (ONW) alliance, 7 months after the world's largest unaligned carrier announced its intentions. The mainline will be integrated by early next year and (JAL)/(JAS) Group members JALways (JAI), Japan Asia Airways (JAA), JAL Express (JEX), J-Air and Japan Transocean Air (SWL) will join as affiliate members. American Airlines (AAL) is (JAL)'s principal sponsor, assisted by Cathay Pacific Airways (CAT). (JAL) and its affiliates will add 47 destinations to (ONW)'s network.

"Japan Airlines (JAL) and the Oneworld (ONW) alliance have been able to conclude all necessary membership agreements extremely speedily, which signals excellent working relationships going forward," (JAL) (CEO) designate Haruka Nishimatsu said.

(SWL) already has interline e-ticketing agreements in place with (AAL) and British Airways (BAB) and will link up with (CAT) within months. Remaining members, plus new recruits Malev Hungarian Airlines (HGA) and Royal Jordanian (RJA), will be online by the time (JAL) joins next year. Oneworld (ONW) said it is the only alliance with interline e-ticketing among all its members.

Following Star (SAL) Alliance's lead, Oneworld (ONW) will consolidate its operations at Tokyo Narita's Terminal 2. Most members of (SAL) will operate out of T1. Qantas (QAN) and (JAL) already are housed in T2, and (AAL), Cathay (CAT) and Finnair (FIN) will relocate from T1 in 2007 and build their own lounges. (BAB) will remain in T1.

Narita spent $10 million to upgrade T2 last year. A $170 million investment starting this year will include a refurbishment of the check-in and security screening area, more user-friendly flight information displays, increased shopping areas and two new gates, bringing T2's total to 30.

February 2007: The Oneworld (ONW) alliance confirmed that Royal Jordanian (RJA), Japan Airlines (JAL)/(JAS), and Malev Hungarian Airlines (HGA) will join the alliance as full members on April 1. 5 additional subsidiaries of JAL Group (JAL)/(JAS) will join the same day as affiliates: JALways (JAI), Japan Asia Airways (JAA), JAL Express (JEX), J-AIR and Japan Transocean Air (SWL). At the same time, Aer Lingus (ARL) will withdraw from the alliance. 3 other airlines are lining up to join as affiliates in 2007: Dragonair (DRG), LAN Argentina (LNR), and (LAN) Ecuador (LNE). The membership changes will expand (ONW)'s reach to almost 700 airports, nearly 150 countries and 9,000 daily departures by around 2,500 airplanes.

April 2007: Japan Transocean Air (SWL), part of the (JAL) Group (JAL)/(JAS), ordered 10 firm (CFM56-3) Advanced Upgrade kits valued at approximately $15 million, plus +20 options. (SWL) currently operates 5 engines equipped with the Advanced Upgrade. (CFM) said the new order with the options, which began delivery in the 1st quarter, will enable (SWL) to upgrade the majority of its (CFM56-3)s by 2010.

May 2007: Starting July 1st, Kobe - Ishigaki, using 737-400s.

May 2008: Japan's Ministry of Land, Infrastructure & Transport announced the following policies that will take effect when Tokyo Haneda's 4th runway opens in 2010, the Center for Asia Pacific Aviation reported: Night curfew will be reduced to 10 pm from 11 pm, to "allow more convenient schedules for USA and European flights," international slots will be restricted to 30,000 until October 2010, and eventually will increase to 60,000, with new slots going to "expansion of Asian city routes where business need is strongest," and domestic slots will double to 20,000 annually.

March 2009: Japan TransOcean Air (SWL) is an affiliate member of the Oneworld (ONW) alliance.

The Japanese economy shrank -13% last quarter, the most since 1974.

October 2012: Orient Thai Airlines (OTH) has taken delivery of a 1st ex-Japan Transocean Air (SWL) 737-400 (25248, HS-BRE).

January 2014: Japanese regional carriers Japan Transocean Air (SWL), J-AIR and Ryukyu Air Commuter (RAC) have selected (AMOS) as their joint airplane maintenance management software.

(AMOS), developed by Swiss Aviation Software (Swiss AS), manages airplane maintenance, engineering and logistics in fulfillment with all airworthiness standards. In 2013, Swiss AS and Lufthansa Systems (LHS) established an (AMOS) business unit in Singapore in an effort to reach more Asia-Pacific region airlines and operators.

Challenges in transitioning to (AMOS) include data cleansing and modeling of the desired joint maintenance process among the three carriers, according to Lufthansa Systems (LHS).

All three carriers, (SWL), J-AIR and (RAC) are subsidiaries of Japan Airlines (JAL)/(JAS).

"In order to grow further as a regional airline even in the situation of severe competition between airlines in Japan, J-AIR decided to introduce a state-of-the-art tool for aircraft maintenance to ensure more efficiency and safety. As a result of careful consideration, (AMOS) turned out to be exactly what we’re looking for. By co-introducing (AMOS) with (SWL) and (RAC), I also expect synergies of increasing the overall strength of the (JAL) Group," said Yasuhiro Takebayashi, Director of Maintenance, J-AIR.

April 2014: Japan Transocean Air (SWL), a member of the (JAL) Group, has selected 12 Boeing 737-800 airplanes in an order valued at $1.1 billion at list prices.

The 737-800s, which are scheduled to enter into service (EIS) from 2016, marks the start of (SWL)’s fleet renewal program. As part of the agreement, (SWL) will have the option to switch to the 737 MAX family of airplanes.

(SWL)’s new 737-800s will be powered by (CFM) International (CFM56-7) engines. According to (CFM), the engine order is valued at $260 million at current list prices. (SWL) will have the flexibility to switch to the (LEAP-1B)-powered Boeing 737 MAX.

May 2014: Japan Transocean Air (SWL)), a member of the (JAL) Group, has finalized an order for 12 Boeing 737-800s in an order valued at $1.1 billion at list prices.

SEE ATTACHED - - "SWL-737-800 - 2014-05."

The arrival of the new airplanes in 2016 will mark the start of (SWL)’s fleet renewal program. As part of the agreement, (SWL) will also have the flexibility to switch to the 737 MAX family of airplanes. “This order is a key part of our strategy to bring the highest levels of comfort, amenity and convenience to the people of Okinawa, by continuing to operate the most reliable and fuel-efficient airplanes available today and in the future,” Manabu Sato President of (SWL) and Executive Officer at Japan Airlines (JAL), said.

Based in Okinawa, Japan’s southernmost major island chain, Japan Airlines Group member, (SWL) currently operates a fleet of 737-400 airplanes on domestic routes linking Okinawa with major Japanese cities as well as other Okinawa islands.

December 2014: 737-4Q3 (26605, JA8525), and (737-446 (28097, JA8994), purchased off lease.

It will increase capacity by +7.5 million passengers per year, Narita deputy Vice Chairman Cargo Fumio Gunji said.

“The total investment for T3 is around $130 million “Narita deputy VP Aviation Marketing Koichi Okawara said.

Currently, 13 low cost carriers (LCC) (4 of them based in Japan) operate out of Narita during the current winter schedule, creating about 21.5% market share of the total.
