Japan Airlines (JAL) has long been a supporter of the Japan Olympics. Of course JAL will sign up as the official partner to support Tokyo's bid for the 2020 Olympics and Paralympics. From now till the host city is announced on September 7 2013, JAL will be promoting Tokyo as the 2020 games candidate city in various ways.

With JAL's extensive international and domestic network, JAL will help promote Tokyo 2020 within Japan and to the rest of the world. JAL will be showing videos in its inflight entertainment program, articles on its inflight magazines, and of course paint a special livery to show its support to the Tokyo 2020 bid and to raise its awareness!

But so far no special livery has been announced yet. Previously JAL has supported the Olympics in various ways which include operated a chartered flight to carry the Olympic Torch from Athens to Okinawa Naha for the Tokyo Olympics back in 1964, be the official airlines for the Japanese national team, and painted various special liveries. Last time when Tokyo bided for the 2016 Olympics, JAL was also an official partner and had painted a plane with special livery to fly domestically. Let's see if this time they will fly the plane internationally!
