Transit Information

Here the process of connecting from a domestic flight to another domestic flight or from a domestic flight to an international flight is explained.


Connecting from a Japan domestic flight to another Japan domestic flight

Through check-in

  • Procedures for connecting between Japan domestic flights and baggage check-in are available for a maximum of 3 sectors. Please present tickets for all sectors up to your final destination, or your IC card or 2D barcode.
  • Connecting flight procedures and baggage check-in are also available when traveling with our partner airlines (AIRDO (ADO), Solaseed Air (SNA), StarFlyer (SFJ), IBEX Airlines (IBX), and Oriental Air Bridge (ORC)).
  • Connecting flight procedures and baggage check-in are not available for Peach (APJ)-operated flights.
  • For connections to JAL Group flights (JAL/JAC/JTA/RAC), only baggage check-in is available. Please carry out boarding procedures (check-in) with the relevant airline.

SKiP Service for connecting flights

If your connecting flights (up to 3 sectors) are booked within the same reservation record, you can go directly to a security check point at the airport (SKiP service).
Hold a medium (E-ticket, ANA Mileage Club card or smartphone with IC function, or downloaded two-dimensional barcode) which has your booking information over the reader to go through security check point and proceed to boarding gate.

Cases where Procedures Must be Completed at a Self-service Check-in Machine or Airport Counter

  • Passengers who have tickets of connecting flights 4 sectors or more
  • Passengers who book each sector separately (In this case, SKiP service is available just for each sector)
  • Itineraries departing from the same airport on the same day were booked separately (excluding passengers boarding using a two-dimensional barcode)
  • Passengers connecting to international flights.

Minimum connecting time

To help ensure that your trip goes smoothly, please allow enough time to transit.
Additional time may be required for connecting passengers requiring assistance. Please consult with the ANA Disability Desk.
