Facts about All Nippon Airways

All Nippon Airways Co., Ltd, also called as ANA, is the biggest airline company in Japan. It is based in the Shiodome area of Minato, Tokyo, at Shiodome City Center. It provides services for both domestic and international flights. Its chief international centers are at Narita International Airport in Tokyo and Kansai International Airport at Osaka. Moreover, its domestic hubs are located at New Chitose Airport (near Sapporo), Osaka International Airport Itami, Tokyo International Airport (Haneda) and Chūbu Centrair International Airport (near Nagoya).

The airline company became a Star Alliance member in October 1999. And on March 29, 2013, ANA got a 5-Star Airline rating from Skytrax.

Formation

The early ancestor of ANA was the Japan Helicopter and Aeroplane, which was an airline company founded on December 27, 1952. ANA’s IATA airline code was obtained from Nippon Helicopter.

NH started its helicopter services in February of 1953. And on December 15, 1953, it started its first ever cargo flight between Tokyo and Osaka with the use of a de Havilland Dove, JA5008. This was the first ever scheduled flight by a Japanese pilot after World War 2. Passenger service also started on February 1, 1954, and was later upgraded in March by a de Havilland Heron.

Another ancestor of the All Nippon Airways is the Far East Airlines. Though it was created on December 26, 1952, which is a day after NH, it didn’t start operations until January 20, 1954, when it began night cargo operations among Osaka and Tokyo, with the use of a de Havilland Dove.

And in March of 1958, NH and FEA merged. The united companies had a total market capital of 600 million yen, and the outcome of the joint venture was the largest private airline in Japan. The combined airline was known as All Nippon Airways. The logo of NH, which was the bigger company of the two, was picked as the logo of the newly merged airline company, and the new airline ran a route combined from its two forerunners.

Fleet

All Nippon Airways has 198 Boeing jets or roughly 84% of the fleet from 236 airplanes and 16 Airbus A320s.

Lately, ANA Holdings Inc. divided a ¥1.7 trillion order for new airplanes from Airbus Group NV and Boeing Co. in the largest acquisition in the carrier history.

The airline company decided to purchase 40 airplanes from Boeing and 30 aircraft from Airbus. The ordered planes will be delivered around 2016 and 2027, according to a source. The order was sanctioned by the directors of the carrier during a meeting last Thursday.

ANA will purchase 23 A321neo planes and 7 A320neo models from Airbus. On the other hand, they will get Boeing 20 777-9X aircraft, 14 787-9 planes, and six 777-300ER models from Boeing.

Destinations

All Nippon Airways operates on large domestic and international network, with scheduled service to over 50 domestic destinations that covers the entirety of Japan, from Hokkaido in the north to Okinawa in the south, and 25 international destinations in Europe, South Asia, East Asia and North America.

With its 5-Star Airline rating from Skytrax and impressive fleet, flying with ANA is, no doubt, an amazing experience. But, if flying on a commercial flight does not suit your taste then you always have the option to rent a private jet. Renting a private jet will provide you ultimate comfort and privacy that commercial flights cannot offer.
