2019 Rugby World Cup

The 2019 Rugby World Cup is taking place in Japan from 20th September to 2nd November – the first time the tournament will take place in Asia.

Chapman Freeborn has seen an increase in charter requests for both group and VIP configuration aircraft ahead of the tournament.

The relatively short distance between the stadiums at the 2019 Rugby World Cup makes the event perfect for air charter. With just 1,500 km between the two furthest locations (Kumamoto and Sapporo), midsize and super-midsize aircraft are ideal for short hops between games. For supporter groups and group travellers, larger passenger aircraft charters allow you to craft your itinerary, travel together, and never miss a match.

Twenty nations from across the globe will be competing over six weeks to be crowned World Champions and lift the Webb Ellis Cup. New Zealand is looking for a third win in a row and are once again favourites, but with recent strong performances from England, Wales, and South Africa, the competition is wide-open.

To celebrate the coming of the 2019 Rugby World Cup, we’ve created an interactive map of the 12 host stadiums at this year’s tournament, as well as some of Japan’s top attractions.
