ANA Partners with JR East to Make Traveling in Japan More Convenient

Published on : Thursday, December 6, 2018

All Nippon Airways (ANA), Japan’s largest and 5-star airline for six consecutive years, is partnering with JR East, another of the country’s leading innovators, to make travel across the Tohoku region as convenient as possible. Both companies have outstanding reputations for hospitality, convenience and reliability. By having the two offer options for visitors to seamlessly travel by air and on the ground, they aim to support the regional revitalization.


Tourism in Japan is on the rise, and ANA has responded by linking its website with JR East, making it possible for visitors to plan and book their entire trip all at once. The “ANA Discover Japan Free & Easy” package is designed to place Japan’s iconic destinations at the traveler’s fingertips, meaning that everything from natural wonders to cultural treasures and culinary delights can be accessed easily.


This package will allow travelers to purchase air tickets, book hotels and register for the JR Akita Free Ticket all at once, streamlining the travel process and enabling all users to create personalized travel itineraries. Sales will run from Dec. 3, 2018, until March 23, 2019, while the two-day tickets will be valid from Jan. 23, 2019 through March 30, 2019.


Special sightseeing information from around the Tohoku region will also be featured on the ANA Japan Travel Planner website to help foreign visitors discover the best the region has to offer.


With the aim to create an opportunity for future visitors to Japan to discover hidden gems of Tohoku region, ANA and JR East will be actively joining promotion events outside of Japan starting January 2019. The two companies also plan to conduct their own events at “Japan Rail CafĂ©,” located in Singapore and Taiwan.


“Though Japan is a popular tourist destination for travelers from around the world, language barriers and logistical difficulties can make it hard for our guests to get far beyond the main urban areas,” said Seiichi Takahashi, Senior Vice President of ANA. “Our partnership with JR East aims to change that by making travel to even the most remote destinations in the Tohoku region as seamless as reaching Tokyo itself. We look forward to helping more and more tourists see the unique beauty of rural Japan and helping them create memories that will last a lifetime.”


ANA and JR East will continue working together to answer to the visitor’s demand and offer everything that travelers need to access destinations across Japan.
