In a hanger at Haneda Airport on October 12, Japan Airlines Co., Ltd. (JAL) revealed an aircraft with special livery to the press: the JAL Eco Jet "Nature."

JAL has repainted a Boeing 777-200, the familiar "Eco Jet" that had a green vertical stabilizer. The livery now features the circular red crane design on the stabilizer, while on the fuselage are four logos for various environmental projects: JAL's Sky Eco; the United Nations Decade on Biodiversity; the Tohoku Cotton Project to cultivate cotton in tsunami-struck areas where rice farming is currently unfeasible; JAL's contributions to this project; and the Mie Restoration National Park Initiative by the Ministry of the Environment.

At the press conference, JAL President Masaru Onishi talked about the airline's efforts to conserve the environment and assist in earthquake relief efforts. R&B singer Misia, Japan's honorary ambassador to the tenth meeting of the Conference of the Parties (COP) to the Convention on Biodiversity, also made an appearance. "I'd like us to keep telling everyone how important it is for the various forms life [on our plant] to live in harmony," she said to stress the importance of these activities.

The aircraft with the new livery will fly on major domestic routes based out of Haneda Airport starting in September.
