Introducing Air Do Boeing 767-300ER PlaneTags, made from the actual fuselage skin from JA98AD, Air Do’s first 767. This aircraft flew for Air Do its entire 22 year career - about 1079 laps around the globe!
Air Do was founded in 1996 as Hokkaido International Airlines. Nicknamed the “Wings of Hokkaido”, the airline sought to establish itself as a low cost regional airline which would connect the prefecture with the rest of Japan. The airline began operating shortly after Japan approved a deregulation policy that allowed airlines to set fares on domestic routes, initially enjoying success from its competitive fares. It later became a subsidiary of All Nippon Airways and now operates 30 round-trip flights on 10 routes, with their current fleet of Boeing 767-300 and 737-700 aircraft.
OUR PLANE'S STORY
JA98AD emerged from Boeing’s Everett, WA plant in February 1998, and was delivered to Hokkaido International Airlines, now Air Do, on March 27, 1998. It arrived at Haneda Airport in Tokyo in June 1998, the airline’s only new aircraft at the time. It was used for training then went into service in December 1998, flying from Haneda to Sapporo.

PlaneTags are Handmade Aviation Tags
- Authentic - made from actual retired aircraft fuselage, not merely stamped metal.
- Unique - each PlaneTag bears the color, thickness, and wear and tear from the portion of the fuselage from which it was cut and it is therefore rare to create two identical PlaneTags.
- Collectible - each one is numbered in a limited edition and comes attached to a display card.
- Versatile - comes with a durable metal ring, strong enough to attach to luggage or keys or display.
- Please Note: Due to limited quantities, combination colors you may receive will vary.
*Important Notice – Please Read Carefully
PlaneTags are made from actual retired aircraft fuselage, not merely stamped metal. Because PlaneTags are made from real fuselage, each PlaneTag bears the color, thickness, and wear and tear from the portion of the fuselage from which it was cut and it is therefore rare to create two identical PlaneTags. These variations and imperfections are not product flaws. They are part of the beauty of PlaneTags. As a result, you will not have an option to select the color of your PlaneTag. The images on this website are provided for reference only and should not be used as the sole basis for choosing a particular PlaneTag.
