Over the past few years, in response to increased air travel demand on a global scale, ANA has continued to expand its network, with a particular focus on international routes. In 2018 ANA will continue to pursue its ‘dual hub model’ in Tokyo that seeks to capitalise on the characteristics of Haneda and Narita airports, capturing not only outbound travel demand from Japan but also inbound demand from overseas and connecting travel between North America and Asia. This includes the addition of a new route between TOKYO/Haneda and Bangkok.
In response to the increasing inbound demand to resort destinations, ANA will be expanding its domestic network, by starting a new route from Fukuoka to Miyako, and operating routes from NAGOYA/Chubu to Miyako and from Fukuoka to Ishigaki all year round (Miyako and Ishigaki are both in Okinawa).
On Cargo routes, the increase in demand from other Asian countries for Japanese goods from the Kyushu market has led to the decision to open new cargo routes from OSAKA/Kansai to Kitakyushu and from Kitakyushu to Okinawa. Through the regular freighter service from Kyushu and the cargo hub in Okinawa, ANA will continue to drive profitability on cargo routes.
In addition to the expansion of its network, ANA will continue to prioritize efforts to maintain and improve service quality, ensuring punctuality and the reliable operation of aircraft.
ANA will continue to push forward with the introduction of new fleets of aircraft, offering superior levels of passenger comfort. On international routes, ANA will continue to expand the number of routes in Asia offering fully-flat Business class seats and also Premium Economy seats and will welcome Japan’s first Airbus A380 and the newest model in the Boeing 787 series, the Boeing 787-10 to its fleet.
On domestic routes, further Airbus A321neo aircraft will be introduced, taking the total number to 11 by the end of the FY 2018. The Airbus A321neo offers personal seat monitors on every seat.
ANA offers ultimate convenience in air travel and looks forward to welcoming you on board.
