- Boarding procedures
- Time in business
Passenger flights at Nippon Airways follow strict boarding procedures. Though they try to make the process as convenient and comfortable as possible, they do have stricter boarding policies than most other airline companies. Passengers are allowed to check in for their flights using the Nippon Airways website, or at a desk check-in at the airport itself. Following the check-in process, at select Nippon Airways airports customers can wait in luxurious, relaxing lounge areas for their flight to begin boarding. Once a flight is boarding, Nippon Airways allows first elderly passengers on the flight, followed by parents with small children, expectant mothers, passengers who need extra assistance, first-class travelers, business class, and finally economy. This process is followed again for disembarking a flight and is followed every time with Nippon Airways. Although these boarding policies might seem stricter than other airlines companies, the process allows for a quick, easy boarding for all passengers.
Nippon Airways flies mainly within Japan for all of their flight destinations. Although recently they have expanded their services to reach much further across the globe. All together the airline has quite a few destination sites they now travel to worldwide. Those locations include, The United States, Canada, Europe, and Asia. Within the United States and Canada, Nippon Airways travels to and from New York, Seattle, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Washington D.C., Chicago, San Jose, Houston, and Honolulu. Compared to other airline companies, specifically the large name airline companies such as Delta and American Airlines, the number of destinations Nippon Airways has outside of Japan, is comparably small. Other airlines travel through much more locations and on a more frequent timetable. However, Nippon Airways is a newer airline company and they have many different airlines under their name, that all hope to expand their destination lists in the near future.
Nippon Airways is fairly new to the airline industry, especially when compared to other airlines most of which have been in business for fifty years or more on average. The company was started in 2012 with the mission to create attractive surroundings for customers, continue to be a familiar presence, and to offer dreams and experiences to people around the world. The unique thing about Nippon Airways is that they have several different airlines under their wing, all included in their Nippon Airways title. Their Cargo airline is a more recent start up airline that has helped Nippon Airways expand their airline business into even more avenues in the sky.
