Foreign nationals from most countries are not currently allowed into Japan unless they are residents of the country. Even then, they have to provide evidence of a negative test in the last three days, have another test on arrival and then isolate for 14 days. Travellers from the UK or South Africa must spend the the first three days of isolation in a government facility and take another test on the third day.
All Nippon Airways said Tuesday that it will halve its international flight services in fiscal 2021 from the initially planned levels for fiscal 2020. The core unit of ANA Holdings Inc., which has been forced to scale down its flight services due to entry restrictions amid the novel coronavirus pandemic, will reduce flights on 19 international routes under its summer timetable between late March and the end of October. The 19 routes include those between Narita International Airport and New York, and between Kansai International Airport and Hong Kong. ANA will put on hold plans to open new routes connecting Tokyo International Airport at Haneda with Milan, Istanbul, Moscow and Stockholm. As a result, the size of the airline's international flight services in terms of the number of seats offered and flight distances will be halved in fiscal 2021.
The 2016 New York International Auto Show was less intense than previous years. With no jaw dropping reveals, it felt as if Mazda captured a bulk of the spotlight with the debut of it's beautiful little Miata MX-5RF sports car. There is more than enough eye candy to keep the show interesting, though. Ford brought back its GT in a new paint job, Lincoln had a Navigator concept that is both impressive in size and design, Porsche trotted out the new 911R, and Mercedes showed off more than one car in mesmerizing matte paint finishes. Nissan brought along six of its previous GT-Rs, including swoon worthy examples of their '69 and '73 bodies.
