All Nippon Airways on Wednesday became the first airline to make draft beer available on tap during domestic flights. Because the pressurized gas required to dispense the beer from kegs is prohibited on flights, ANA teamed up with Hoshizaki Denki to develop a server that uses gas from dry ice instead.
The drinks will be available after 5 p.m. on select flights from Naha to Haneda, Osaka, Kansai, Chubu and Fukuoka airports, as well as flights from Haneda to Sapporo and Fukuoka. The beer will be available for 1,000 yen with snacks and limited to 20 glasses per flight on most trips.
