~ Miles can also be collected, value-for-money and convenient! Have a lot of fun in Tokyo! ~
ANA X Inc. (Representative Director and President: Shinichi Inoue, headquarters: Chuo-ku, Tokyo) is aiming to realize TaaS (Travel as a Service),*1 which seamlessly offers everything from before-travel needs such as search, booking, and purchases to during-travel needs such as ground transportation, experiences, shopping, settlements of accounts, etc. as one service, so on November 1 (Monday) at 14:00 the company collaborated with LINKTIVITY Inc. (headquarters: Chuo-ku, Tokyo; hereafter referred to as “LINKTIVITY”), a company which offers a booking platform business for railroad tickets and travel activities, etc. in Japan, to commence a demonstration experiment specialized in the “railroad and venue entry tourism” type of during-travel service content in the Kanto area.
[Overview of the demonstration experiment]
Establishment period: From November 1, 2021 (Monday) to January 31, 2022 (Monday) is planned*2

* In order to collect the extra miles, it is necessary to go from the relevant page via the ANA Mileage Club customer number confirmation page to receive member authentication, and then go to the LINKTIVITY site to carry out the booking.
* Bookings can be made from the above site or from the booking completion screen of the ANA Traveler’s Dynamic Package, ANA Traveler’s Rental Cars and ANA Traveler’s Play and Experiences. Furthermore, bookings can be made from the booking details screen as well if you have already booked an ANA air ticket to Haneda Airport.
Previously, it was necessary to print out a voucher and exchange it at the station ticket counter, etc., but through this demonstration experiment paperless ticket issuing has become possible.*3 A QR code is sent to the customer in advance and the customer presents the QR code at a ticket vending machine, etc. Going forward, we will aim for the realization of non-contact and seamless travel which even more closely supports the needs of the market.

*2 About the establishment period: There is a possibility that the establishment period will be extended to February 2022 and beyond. For the details, please confirm the ANA website.
*3 In the case of the Tokyo Monorail, there is no QR code exchange; simply presenting the smartphone screen to the station attendant constitutes a mobile ticket.
