Board in Style with the ANA SKiP Service for Japan Domestic Flights
What is the SKiP Service?
The SKiP service allows passengers who have completed their reservation, purchase, and seat reservation to skip the check-in counter and go straight to security.
If you have any baggage to check in, please proceed directly to the baggage drop counter.
- Each passenger is permitted to carry up to one piece of baggage on board, in addition to their personal belongings (their handbag, camera, umbrella, etc.).
How to Use This Service
Upon reserving/purchasing your flight ticket and making your seat reservation on the ANA website, prepare the item you will need for boarding (barcode or card with IC functionality, etc.) to take with you. After arriving at the airport, skip check-in and proceed straight to security. At security, scan your barcode or card with IC functionality, etc. on the reader and then pass through. Use the same item to pass through the boarding gate.
