The Chauffeur Service Blacklane Expands to Japan

In the wake of its international expansion to Buenos Aires, New York City, and Hong Kong, Blacklane has decided to bring its comfortable, reliable transportation services to Japan. With the launch in Tokyo, the German company is opening itself to another thriving market in Asia and millions of potential new customers.

With its two airports, Narita and Haneda, Tokyo is a perfect base for Blacklane to jump-start its global chauffeur service in Japan. With its 9 million inhabitants, Tokyo is the financial and industrial heart of the country.

Expanding to the Japanese market was only a matter of time. “Whether one is planning ahead for a business trip or next holiday, one can book us right along with the flight. The days of having to look around for taxis or other means of getting around after arrival are over,” Wohltorf continues.

is firmly establishing itself as one of the leading international players in the limousine service industry. “Local providers welcome us wherever we show up, knowing that we’ll add to their revenue instead of diminishing it.”

Bookings can be made around the clock either online at or using the “Blacklane” smartphone app. After specifying their pickup location and booking period or desired destination, customers can choose from one of three classes of vehicles (Business Class, Business Van/SUV, First Class) at a binding, fixed price including all taxes. Cars can be booked up to fifteen minutes before the customer's required pickup time.

Blacklane limousines can be booked worldwide in more than 125 cities in 40 countries.
