Haneda-Miyakojima Campaign in collaboration with Skymark
Hmlet Japan Co. Ltd (Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo, CEO: Kenichi Sasaki, hereinafter referred to as “Hmlet”), providing “Rental housing that will change your way of living” has recently formed a collaboration with Skymark Inc. (Ota-ku, Tokyo, CEO: Hora Hayao, hereinafter referred to as “Skymark”), an airline service that helps people move freely between the capital and the other domestic areas.
This campaign is open to Hmlet members, and the selected members will be offered roundtrip flight tickets from Haneda to Miyakojima operated by Skymark Airline, for an experience in Miyakojima.
Hmlet aims at providing a network for members to communicate and meet people from multicultural backgrounds. This time, Hmlet is partnering with Skymark Airline, whose motto is to provide people with convenient flight options, to offer its residents a chance to explore a second home outside of the urban area and a flexible living experience.
The Haneda-Miyako (Shimojishima) route operated by Skymark Airline was approved for operation after Skymark, together with Okinawa Prefecture, Miyakojima City, and Shimojishima Airport Management Corporation, submitted an application to the “Haneda Slot Policy Contest” held by the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism.
In addition to this route, Skymark is also working with the local community to promote the use of the Kobe-Miyako (Shimojijima) route and the Naha-Miyako (Shimojijima) route, which opened around the same time.
In implementing the Miyakojima project, the city of Miyakojima and Massigra Okinawa Times Corporation will provide free trial tickets to the co-working spaces “Miyakojima ICT Exchange Center” and “howlive Miyakojima,” and will conduct a questionnaire for the participants in cooperation with the Shimojijima Airport Activation Council* to support in resolving issues such as the improvement of the reception environment in the region.
（※）The organization was established in August 2020 by Miyakojima City, Okinawa Prefecture, Miyakojima Tourism Association, Miyakojima Chamber of Commerce and Industry, and Shimojishima Airport Management Corporation for the purpose of planning and implementing various projects that contribute to the revitalization of Shimojishima Airport, such as improving the reception environment of the Miyakojima and promoting air routes at Shimojishima Airport.
