Japan Transocean Air Launches New "OKINAWA Island Pass"

Tokyo, October 1, 2009: Japan Transocean Air (JTA), a JAL Group subsidiary, launched a new fare product, the “OKINAWA Island Pass” today. Available to foreign tourists visiting Okinawa, the new pass can be used on any JTA operated flights plying 5 domestic routes within the Okinawa prefecture, southwest of Japan.

 

In recent times, the number of visitors from Hong Kong, Taiwan, and other parts of South East Asia to the Okinawa area has been on the rise, reaching almost 250,000 in 2008. Eyeing further tourism growth in the subtropical islands known for their beautiful beaches, the “OKINAWA Island Pass” is expected to additionally boost demand by making trips to the islands for foreign visitors inexpensive and convenient. The JAL Group also recently announced the establishment of a new feeder service connecting Japan’s main international hub, Narita International Airport in Tokyo, with Okinawa’s Naha Airport which will commence from January 5, 2010, allowing for smoother transfers to the popular tourist destination from abroad.

 

Overseas visitors to Japan can utilize the JAL Group’s two existing domestic passes and the “OKINAWA Island Pass” to further explore and discover the many wonders of Japan.

 

For more details, passengers are requested to contact the JAL Regional Sales Office in their region.
