TOKYO, JAPAN, 2021-Nov-17 — /Travel PR News/ — All Nippon Airways (ANA), Japan’s largest and 5-Star airline for nine consecutive years, has partnered with Mita Kokusai Building Clinic and Inbound Platform Corp. to offer PCR tests in multiple languages as well as certification forms for negative result according to the designated forms of countries. Beginning today, ANA will make this service available to passengers on international flights departing from Japan to ensure that they are able to meet entry and quarantine guidelines at their destinations.
“We are excited to expand our service of testing options to help ensure that all passengers have a safe travel experience and meet local entry requirements at their destination,” said Junko Yazawa, Executive Vice President, Customer Experience Management & Planning of ANA. “By increasing the availability of tests and offering additional certification options, we are confident that ANA passengers will be able to travel with additional comfort and security. As international travel begins to return, ANA wants to do all we can to ensure that convenience is enhanced wherever possible.”
As the entry requirements differ by country, ANA began a referral service on the ANA website in early October to obtain the necessary documents for seamless entry. In order to prepare for the return of international travel, ANA will expand the number of available languages to include not only Japanese, but also English, Chinese, and other languages for testing, and issue certificates according to the designated forms of more than 150 countries.
