Bringing fresh cherries to everyone thanks to fast delivery!
- Seasonal transport of cherries on Yamagata flights

July 13, 2021 Updated.

The JAL Group transports cherries produced in Yamagata Prefecture, Japan's largest producer of cherries, by air for a limited period in June, the peak season for shipments. The shipments began in 2016 to meet the producers’ wishes to bring freshly picked cherries to tables across Japan, as air transportation can deliver the freshness of seasonal cherries.

The video presents the process of cherry transport in 2021 and the thoughts of staff involved.
