Haneda Airport Tokyo, very much the home base of Japan Airlines (JAL), was the setting for the official unveiling of the carrier’s latest traditional “Crane” livery last week. A brand new Boeing 767-300ER was the chosen aircraft for the ceremony.
The change in logo was announced last month as JAL continues with its renaissance under new management after it entered the Japanese equivalent of Chapter 11 in January 2010.
The aircraft then departed on a commemorative service from Haneda to Kushiro in Northern Hokkaido where actual red-crowned cranes can be seen in winter. This flight was part of a special one-day tour organized in collaboration with JAL Tours to mark the occasion, and included a visit to one of Kushiro's several crane sanctuaries. www.jal.com
