JAL Tohoku Support Project - International Chartered Flights to and from Tohoku


Japan Airlines (JAL) has started JAL Tohoku Support Project - "VISIT TOHOKU!" since June 1, 2013 under its basic CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) Policy. For purpose of supporting disaster-affected area, the airline contributes to stimulate tourism demands and support local industries in Tohoku through its activities of "Bring more tourists to Tohoku" and "Promote people's interest in Tohoku", as well as contributes to support the disaster-affected inhabitants.
JAL decided to operate two round-trip chartered flights from Taipei, Taiwan to Tohoku and one round-trip chartered flight from Fukushima to Honolulu in accordance with this purpose.
Many countries and areas in the world have made donations to the disaster-affected area after the Great East Japan Earthquake happened, and among them, especially Taiwan has made a generous donation to disaster-affected area in Tohoku. JAL operates chartered flights to enable people in Taiwan to visit today's Tohoku and experience Tohoku's attractions in line with further stimulating tourism demands in Tohoku.
Meanwhile, through the chartered flight from Fukushima to Honolulu, JAL wants to provide residents in Fukushima a closer opportunity to refresh their minds by travelling abroad and encourage them to keep walking on the way to rehabilitation. 
JAL will fulfill its responsibility as a corporate citizen to meet the expectations of society through its core air transport business. Starting from JAL Tohoku Support Project, the airline will develop various kinds of CSR activities to contribute the betterment of society.
