Japan Airlines (JAL) has announced that it will introduce new HALLIBURTON ZERO amenity kits for passengers on select international routes starting on December 28.

JAL is the first airline in the world to partner with luggage manufacturer ZERO HALLIBURTON, famous for the aluminium cases used on Apollo 11 in 1969 to carry moon-rocks safely back to Earth.

ZERO HALLIBURTON, manufacturers of the world’s first high-performance aluminium travel cases, got their start in 1938 when Erle P. Halliburton, a globetrotting businessman, commissioned a team of aircraft engineers to build him cases tough enough to survive treks to the rough terrain of the Texas oilfields in the back of his truck.

The airline and ZERO HALLIBURTON have designed two versions of the amenity kits: soft case and semi-hard case in different colours which will change with the seasons.

Passengers on outbound flights from Japan will get soft case kits, and semi-hard case kits on inbound flights. The colours featured include dark green or orange on outbound flights, and red or black on inbound flights. The first sets kits of kits will be soft-case dark green and semi-hard case red, loaded with all the necessary comfort amenities.

The kits will be available on flights between Tokyo (Haneda) and San Francisco, London (LHR) and Paris (CDG); Tokyo (Narita) and New York (JFK), Boston, Chicago, Dallas/Fort Worth (DFW), Los Angeles, San Diego, Vancouver, Paris (CDG), Frankfurt, Helsinki, Moscow and Sydney; and Osaka (Kansai) and Los Angeles.
