TOKYO -- All Nippon Airways will debut discount airfares taking foreigners to parts of Japan they rarely see, tapping a tax break totaling 40 billion yen ($365 million) designed to boost tourism.

The Japanese airline, part of ANA Holdings, will offer discount tickets starting in 2020 that allow travelers to make multistop trips between regional airports over a given period. These tickets, available only for foreign visitors, will go on sale in time for the Tokyo Summer Olympics.
