Since last year, Haneda Airport in Ohta Ward, Tokyo has been creating special large displays in Terminal 1 to support Tokyo's bid for the 2020 Summer Olympics.

The Tokyo 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Bid Committee and Japan Air Lines Co., Ltd. (JAL), which has concluded an official partner agreement as a sponsor from the air transport and traveler service sector, plan to make widespread use of walls, floors and other surfaces in the domestic terminal building to promote the bid among airport visitors and increase the city's chances of winning.

An all-out effort is being made to prominently place the displays throughout the terminal, which include photos of triumphant Japanese Olympians at the London Olympics on the wall over the check-in counter in the second-floor departures lobby, along with a giant logo and running track painted on the floor. A statement from JAL commenting on the creation of the displays for Haneda Airport, where it operates more flights than anywhere else in Japan, said, "The entire JAL group is offering its support to instill dreams, hopes and pride in the next generation of aspiring children, awaken dynamism across Japan and make this Tokyo bid a successful one."

In November, JAL also painted one of its aircraft that flies on domestic routes with a special livery featuring the bid logo. The Haneda Airport displays will remain in place until March 31.
