This Airline Will Rent Clothes to Passengers on Overseas Flights — Here’s Why

July 06, 2023

Japan Airlines wants to take the guesswork out of packing with a new clothing rental service for international travelers. For a year, the airline will allow travelers on JAL-operated flights to rent a set of clothes for their time in the country, according to the airline. Travelers increasingly desire to make more sustainable choices… [but] they still lack sufficient options,” JAL wrote in a statement. JAL isn’t the first to send clothing rentals to a traveler’s hotel. In 2021, Rent the Runway partnered with Tripadvisor Plus for a closet concierge program in which members could request designer clothing be delivered to them.
