Currently, All Nippon Airways and Japan Airlines have implemented measures to suspend or reduce flights on 90% of international flights and 40% of domestic flights.
In order to maintain the flight function of passenger planes, Japan Airlines plans to use passenger planes on international routes to launch a sightseeing flight service from Narita Airport.
The flight time is 3 and a half hours, and visitors can take the plane to watch the sunset, gaze at the dazzling starry sky, and enjoy the in-flight package of the Hawaii route.
In addition, All Nippon Airways also plans to use the world's largest double-decker airliner Airbus A380 to launch a tour flight service in September.
In view of the significant reduction in passenger aircraft passengers, in addition to regularly launching excursion flights, airlines also plan to use passenger aircraft to carry cargo to strengthen the effective use of passenger aircraft.
