MANILA – VML Y&R’s latest campaign, ‘Japan Elevated,’ for All Nippon Airways Global lets you experience Japan in the skies. 
 
The campaign opens with a passenger looking out her window and she gets up as soon as the captain turned off the seatbelt sign.  
 
Viewers are then brought to a dream-like world set above the clouds showcasing the things that Japan has to offer: hospitable airlines staff, well-prepared food, cherry blossoms blown in the air and floating origami.
 
With the aim to experience Japan even before the plane lands, the campaign introduces a Japan not found on the map, where 5-Star service meets world-class taste and a modern adventure unfolds before you even arrive.
 
“Experience an air of extraordinary only on Japan’s largest 5-star airline,” the screen reads.
 
The campaign was released on March 26 through the ANA Global Channel. Watch the campaign below:
