Support for Culture and Sports

Basic Stance

The JAL Group supports activities that lead to cultural exchanges and sports promotion, using the Group’s route network.
In the field of culture, we provide fine arts transportation services and play a role in connecting communities worldwide and expanding Japanese culture.
In the field of sports, we provide opportunities for children to reach their sports potential and strengthen people-to-people connections through sports. We also support activities to realize a symbiotic society by raising awareness of disability sport.

Support for Cultural Activities (support for art exhibitions)

The JAL Group cooperates with various art exhibitions by transporting paintings and other art works for art exhibitions over its international and domestic route networks.
