JAL and TANITA's collaboration to provide health support during travel Introducing in-flight meal service 「SKY Wellness Kitchen」
Japan Airlines Co. Ltd
Japan Airlines Co. Ltd (Head Quarters : Shinagawa Prefecture, Tokyo, CEO : Yuji Akasaka, as 「JAL」) and
TANITA Corporation (Head Quarters : Itabashi Prefecture, Tokyo, CEO Senri Tanita, as 「TANITA」) will start a collaboration on JAL’s International long haul flights (except for some routes) to provide health support to
passengers on their trip, from July 1st, 2021.
The JAL “AIR series,” which has been in operation since 2011, will be revamped to offer a new menu,
“Sky Wellness Kitchen” for your Body’s Pleasure. The menu is supervised by TANITA CAFÉ, a concept café
operated by TANITA that incorporates the essence of “mental health promotion”. The first item on the menu is
the “Chewing” Healthy Salad Bowl, accompanied by a leaflet that introduces the immunity column and original
stretching exercises of TANITA Gymnastics.
【Outline of the project 】
Focusing on boosting immunity, TANITA CAFÉ will offer an original menu that incorporates the “chewing” element, which is one of the features of TANITA CAFÉ, and nutrients such as protein that boost immunity. In addition to activating the brain, chewing is expected to improve the immunes system , which protects the body from viruses and bacteria that invade from outside the body. We are planning to offer new menu items under the supervision of TANITA CAFÉ in the future.
■Applicable Period : From July 1st (Wed), 2021 to June 30th (Thu), 2022 as scheduled

・Main Dish : 「TANITA CAFÉ’s “Chewing” Healthy Salad Bow」
The menu contains proteins, vitamins, and dietary fiber that boosts immunity. Mochi wheat rice, which is rich
in dietary fiber and has a bubble wrap texture, contains clams and root vegetables with iron and zinc. The salt marinated chicken breast containing vitamin B6, and tomato sauce containing vitamins A, C, and E, which have antioxidant effects, are a perfect match for a healthy salad bowl.
・Dessert：「Soymilk pudding with strawberry sauce」
Smooth pudding that uses soy milk containing lactic acid bacteria with crushed texture of strawberry sauce and pistachio accents.
2．Health knowledge and exercise
In-flight meals will be served with a leaflet that describes health knowledge. The leaflet includes a column
focusing on immunity, which is attracting attention right now, as well as TANITA Gymnastics original stretches
that can be easily done at home or at your destination. JAL and TANITA will support customers’ health
promotion not only in the sky, but also during the trip.
In addition, from November, "In-Flight Gymnastics," one of the in-flight video contents, will be renewed with a
new video supervised by TANITA. The exercises, which can be performed easily to music, will not only help
prevent deep vein thrombosis, but will also refresh the body and make long flights more comfortable.
JAL and Tanita will collaborate to provide a new “health -creating “service in the sky so that passengers can
spend their time with peace of mind in the Corona disaster.
