TOKYO--(Marketwire - January 18, 2011) -

  • First service to inland China with launch of Narita-Chengdu route
  • Launch of Joint Venture with United Airlines and Continental Airlines
  • Increase in capacity to meet demand and further enhance profitability

ANA Group, today announced details of its route network and corporate plan for the financial year commencing on April 1, 2011.

Following the expansion of capacity at Tokyo airports in FY2010, ANA has worked to establish new destinations and increase flights on existing routes. A further increase in runway slots is planned in the medium term, and this represents an opportunity for ANA Group to expand operations in what is becoming an intensely competitive business environment. In addition, the airline industry generally is facing more competition from other modes of transport, for example the opening of full Shinkansen bullet train services to Kyushu.

In this environment, ANA plans to optimize its fleet and increase the efficiency of its operations further, to ensure stable positive cash flow and increased profits. At the same time, ANA will work to improve passenger service and choice by launching its joint business venture with United Airlines and Continental Airlines.
