Keisei and Keikyu Rail Operators in Joint Campaign to Lure Foreign Tourists with Deals on Rail Tickets between Downtown Tokyo and Narita and Haneda Airports

Keisei and Keikyu Rail Operators in Joint Campaign to Lure Foreign Tourists Keisei Electric Railway Co., Ltd. and Keihin Electric Express Railway Co., Ltd. are running a promotional campaign targeted at foreign visitors to Japan who use Narita and Haneda Airports. Officially named the "Keisei & Keikyu Japan Access Campaign," it has been running since November 1. ("Keikyu" refers to Keihin Electric Express Railway.)

The two companies, which provide rail access between the two airports and downtown Tokyo, have joined hands in a project meant to attract foreign travelers, fewer of whom have been coming to Japan since the Tohoku Pacific Earthquake. During the campaign, the companies will give merchandise such as hand towels (Keisei) and cloth drink bottle bags (Keikyu) with original designs to foreign travelers who purchase a ticket set containing a ticket from either one of the airports to downtown as well as a one-day pass for unlimited rides on the subway. The ticket sets are sold at Narita and Haneda Airports.

The applicable ticket set from Keisei is the Keisi Skyliner & Metro Pass (JPY 2,600+), while the sets from Keikyu are the Chikatetsu Kyotsu Pass (JPY 1,300), Tokyo Travel 1 Day Pass (JPY 800) and the Tokyo Travel 2 Day Pass (JPY 1,200). Keisei sets can be purchased at Skyliner ticket counters at Narita Airport Station and Airport Terminal 2 Station, while the Keikyu sets are available at the Keikyu Tourist Information Center on the second floor of Haneda Airport International Terminal Station.

"We hope this joint campaign will be beneficial for both our rail companies, who provide transport to the international airports," said a Keisei Electric Railway spokesperson.
