ANA applied to MLIT in November 2014 for antitrust immunity enable ANA and UA to create a more efficient and comprehensive trans-Pacific air cargo business network.
This antitrust immunity and any additional government approvals, enables ANA and UA to jointly manage activities covered by the air cargo joint venture – including network planning, pricing, sales, and handling – on specified trans-Pacific routes. This cargo joint venture is the first of its kind between Asia and the Americas, and would generate substantial service benefits for freight customers including an expanded network, greater capacity and expedited transport.
ANA and UA, as members of Star Alliance, and this cargo joint venture will expand their existing relationships while providing valuable benefits to the customers.
