Japan Airlines has unveiled a new golf-themed livery design for its B777-300ER to mark the PGA Champions tournament that’s taking place in Japan for the first time in September.

The “Japan Airlines Championship Jet” is set to showcase its new design from August 4 primarily on its routes to North America (Japan Airlines has yet to decide when it will cease flying the aircraft in the new livery).

A somewhat more subtle livery design than some others that have been unveiled over the past year, the design features a large golf ball painted to the side of the fuselage with the word “Champions” emblazoned beneath the second-to-last door, which also has a blue PGA Tour logo painted next to it.

Golf fans travelling on the carrier’s Tokyo Narita flights to Chicago, New York JFK and Los Angeles will have the best chance of flying in the aircraft. Japan Airlines also recently launched a new Tokyo Haneda to New York JFK route earlier this year.

Travellers on board the flight will also be able to watch player interviews on the carrier’s in-flight entertainment (IFE) system.

The PGA Championship is set to take place from September 4 to 10 at Narita Golf Club.
