AMAKUSA, Kumamoto Prefecture—A small airline is offering a chance for diehard aviation fans to take 10 flights a day for a combined 10,000 yen ($88) despite a demanding itinerary without any opportunity for sightseeing.

Amakusa Airlines Co.’s service, which is limited to four persons a day, runs through March 10.

The company’s only aircraft makes 10 daily flights, including three round trips between Amakusa and Fukuoka, both on the southern island of Kyushu.

Daredevil travelers who board all 10 flights will fly a total of 2,400 kilometers over 7 hours and 15 minutes.

They will leave Amakusa on the day’s first flight at 7:55 a.m. and return to the island on the last flight at 7:40 p.m.

The 10-leg journey will also take the day-trippers to Kumamoto and Osaka, but there will be virtually no time to spend in any destination.

The company’s 48-seat ATR42-600 twin turbo-prop aircraft, for example, will arrive at Kumamoto at 10:30 a.m. but leave for Osaka only 25 minutes later. Similarly, the aircraft will leave Osaka at 12:50 p.m., 40 minutes after its arrival, to return to Kumamoto.

If the airplane hoppers bail midway through the journey, they will be charged regular fares for all the flights they have taken. The price of one flight ranges between 7,800 yen and 18,700 yen.

Those who complete all 10 legs will be given a gold badge. Passengers can alternatively choose eight or six consecutive flights including the day’s first flight also for 10,000 yen. They will receive silver and bronze badges, respectively.

When Amakusa Airlines offered the service for the first time between January and March, 173 people applied. One audacious flier earned all three certificates by taking six, eight and 10 flights on three different days.

The company is accepting reservations for Jan. 7-31 until Dec. 10 on its Japanese-language website: (
