TOKYO: All Nippon Airways, an ANA Holdings Inc. unit, and Japan Airlines plan to start workplace COVID-19 vaccinations on Monday, it was learned Friday.
Vaccination priority will be given to employees involved in international flights. ANA and JAL will first vaccinate international flight pilots and cabin attendants, then expand capacity gradually.
Both companies originally prepared to start inoculations on June 21 but moved up the date due to a request from the Japanese government, officials of the airlines said.
The vaccination venue is planned to be a conference room at Tokyo International Airport at Haneda.
