Japan Airlines to provide free access to Wi-Fi hotspots across Japan

Japan Airlines to provide free access to Wi-Fi hotspots across Japan

From July, passengers on Japan Airlines flights arriving into the airline’s home nation will enjoy free access to WiFi hotspots across half the country.

Covering 17 cities and valid for up to 14 days, access will be provided through partnerships with Nippon Telegraph and Telephone East Corporation (NTT East).

Japan Airlines’ website will shortly be updated with the new functionality, allowing travellers to apply for a free Wi-Fi ID and password to use the service.

The airline found that around half of international leisure visitors to Japan had a strong desire for free internet access.

With over 46,000 hotspots across Japan, NTT East provides this functionality to both tourists and business travellers alike.

Free Wi-Fi will be available in Tokyo, Hokkaido, Akita, Aomori, Chiba, Fukushima, Gunma, Ibaraki, Iwate, Kanagawa, Miyagi, Nagano, Niigata, Saitama, Tochigi, Yamagata and Yamanashi.

Coverage maps for Tokyo travellers can be downloaded and saved to your device for the Asakusa and Ginza Tsukiji (PDF, 840KB) andHarajuku Omotesando, Akihabara, Nihonbashi Yokoyamacho and Shinjuku regions (PDF, 1.3MB).
