Japan Domestic Flights
Japan is covered by an extensive domestic air network. The Domestic air travel segment of Japan and Japanese domestic flights are mainly managed by All Nippon Airways (ANA) and Japan Airlines (JAL), together with a number of smaller carriers. Both Nippon Airways (ANA) and Japan Airlines (JAL) groups consist of several airlines and serve over fifty airports across the Japanese islands. The JAL Group provides services to over 60 major airports all over Japan and operates only about 650 domestic flights in Japan, each day. On the other hand, the ANA Group serves over 50 airports in Japan
and operates about 850 domestic flights
If you are on a tight schedule, domestic flights can be a practical alternative to rail travel, particularly on longer journeys or on routes that are not covered by Japaní»s vast network of high-speed trains. For shorter trips however, the Shinkansen (Bullet Train) is often quicker than flying when you consider the additional journey time required for airport transfers and check-in.
In recent years, just because of increasing competition from among discount airlines, domestic flight fares in Japan have come down spectacularly. Nearly all domestic air travel is now cost-effective and affordable by the common people. So much so that sometimes, flying in Japan becomes a cheaper option to the Shinkansen Bullet Train on some of the routes in Japan. It is the many discount offers, provided by various airlines, which have made domestic air travel in Japan more affordable.
JAL's Yokoso (Welcome) Japan Air pass allows foreign nationals to fly between 42 Japanese destinations for about 11,100 Yen per sector. Like the Japan Rail Pass, travelers must live outside Japan and purchase the Air pass prior to visiting Japan. ANA offers a similar air pass that allows travelers to fly between 73 domestic Japanese destinations for about12, 600 Yen per destination. Similar restrictions apply to the ANA air pass.

The two leading airlines in Japan: Japan Airlines (JAL) and All Nippon Airways (ANA), both serve a broad range of international destinations. The Central Japan International Airport (CJIA) is the largest current Japanese public works project covered by the 1991 Major Projects Arrangement (MPA) between the United States and Japan.
