Japan Transocean Air (JTA), a JAL Group subsidiary, has launched a new product to make exploring Japan easier and more affordable. The “OKINAWA Island Pass”, can be used on any JTA operated flights connecting 5 domestic routes within Okinawa prefecture. The new pass makes travelling around the stunning subtropical islands of Okinawa an inexpensive and convenient option for tourists to the area.
On 5th January 2010, JAL launched flights from Narita International Airport in Tokyo to Okinawa’s Naha Airport, allowing smoother transfers to the popular tourist destination from outside Japan. Previously JAL travellers arriving at Narita Airport and then had to transfer to Tokyo’s Haneda Airport, which is 75 minutes away, for JAL flights to Okinawa. The new Narita JAL services to Okinawa make for much smoother and faster connections.
