The airline is also a partner of the Japan Mountaineering and Sport Climbing Association (JMSCA).

'Japan Airlines will be strongly represented on IFSC social media as it aims to pass on a better society to the next generation through the airline business,' the press release continues. 'The company's "Fostering the Next Generation" program provides hands-on educational experiences and social welfare to children, and Japan Airlines also supports young athletes by encouraging JAL Mileage Bank members to donate their miles to under-funded sports projects.'

The growing popularity of climbing in Japan and the rise of country's high-performing national team - who topped the team rankings in bouldering last season - underpin the partnership agreement ahead of Sport Climbing's Olympic debut in Tokyo 2020.
