All Nippon Airways has revealed it will add Perth in western Australia and Chennai in southern India to its proposed flight schedule for the upcoming year.
Based on the rising global demand for air travel, ANA has expanded its network of routes, placing an emphasis on international flights.
During 2019, ANA plans to proactively develop new routes to areas where service was not previously available.
ANA will also seek to further strengthen its dual hub model in Tokyo, making full use of both Haneda and Narita airports.
ANA will continue to maintain and improve profitability by optimizing the size of the aircraft in accordance with demand trends and the competitive environment, all while also flexibly adjusting aircraft types in use.
Building upon the changes to its passenger side, ANA’s potential to meet demand for cargo transport will also increase with the introduction of a new Boeing 777F large-scale air freighter.
This coincides with projected increases in demand over the medium to long term for routes between Asia and North America.
The airline also aims to further increase the comfort of passengers by introducing new state-of-the-art aircraft, products and services.
ANA will employ Japan’s first Airbus A380 aircraft on its Hawaii route, providing a new travel experience.
In addition, ANA plans to improve profitability by introducing the Boeing 787-10, the latest model in the Boeing 787 series, to its south-east Asian routes.
This new addition is expected to capture the increasing demand for connection traffic via Japan.
