- ・ANA further expanded its domestic route network by opening a new Nagoya (Chubu)-Miyako route in June. Furthermore, the Dynamic Fleet Assignment Model, enabling precise allocation of aircraft in line with demand, was expanded, allowing for improved matching of supply and demand.
- ・On the marketing front, ANA held regular Tabiwari Time Sales for a variety of travel situations to further stimulate demand.
As a result, revenues from domestic passenger services increased by 4.0 billion yen (a 2.7% year-on-year increase).
- 2. International Passenger Services
- ・International passenger numbers and revenues increased compared with the same quarter last year thanks to strong demand for Business class seats from Japan, recovery of outbound leisure travel to Europe, which was previously impacted by terrorist attacks, and robust travel demand to Japan.
- ・In terms of the route network, following the introduction of the Tokyo (Haneda)-Honolulu route, ANA introduced ANA Business Staggered full flat seats and Premium Economy on Tokyo (Narita)-Honolulu route to improve products and services and capture burgeoning demand.
- ・On the marketing front, ANA introduced various discount fares during the Golden Week Holidays to further stimulate leisure travel demand.
- ・ANA fully renewed the wine and champagne menu offered to First class and Business class passengers in June, and ANA's Chef Service was offered every day in the International ANA LOUNGE at Haneda Airport.
As a result, revenues from international passenger services increased by 16.1 billion yen (a 13.1% year-on-year increase).
- 3. Cargo Services
- ・In the domestic cargo business, revenues increased year-on-year thanks to improvements in the unit price and the steady performance of home-delivery cargo and cargo connecting with international routes. However, cargo volume decreased owing to factors such as the reduction in perishable cargo handled out of Hokkaido.
- ・In the international cargo business, revenues were up 31.3% on the same quarter a year ago thanks to the strong performance of cargo from Japan to overseas destinations as a result of robust demand centered on automobile parts bound for North America and Europe. Cargo from overseas also saw strong growth in volume and revenues as ANA captured demand for transportation of cargo from China and other parts of Asia to Japan, and trilateral cargo from China to North America via Japan.
As a result, revenue from domestic cargo services increased slightly (a 0.9% year-on-year increase) and revenue from international cargo services increased by 6.4billion yen (a 31.3% year-on-year increase).
- 4. Others
- ・Other revenue in the air transportation business was 66.4 billion yen (a 40.7% year-on-year increase). Revenue in "Others in Air Transportation" is derived mainly from the mileage program, Vanilla Air Inc., Peach Aviation Limited, in-flight sales, and maintenance service contracts.
- ・Vanilla Air Inc. made efforts to improve profitability by matching supply and demand, capturing high demand during the Golden Week Holidays by increasing the number of flights on the Tokyo (Narita)-Sapporo route, while decreasing the number of flights during periods of low demand. During this quarter, passenger numbers were up 45.9% to 651,000, available seat-kilometers up 34.0% to 1.221 billion, revenue passenger-kilometers up 36.7% to 1.035 billion and the passenger load factor was up 1.7% to 84.8% compared with the same quarter a year ago.
- ・Peach Aviation Limited increased the number of flights on its Osaka (Kansai)-Shanghai (Pudong) route from June. New aircraft delivery brought the size of its fleet to 19 aircraft. In the three months ended June 30, 2017, the number of passengers was 1.186 million, there were 1.611 billion available seat-kilometers, 1.382 billion revenue passenger-kilometers and a passenger load factor of 85.8%.
- Airline Related, Travel Services, Trade and Retail and Others
- ・In Airline Related businesses, operating revenues for the first quarter were 65.8 billion yen (a 7.3% year-on-year increase) and operating income was 4.2 billion yen (a 72.8% year-on-year increase) thanks to an increase in contracts for ground handling services including passenger check-in and baggage handling at Haneda and Kansai airports, and an increase in contracts for in-flight meals from foreign airlines.
- ・In Travel Services, operating revenues for the first quarter were 36.3 billion yen (a 6.4% year-on-year increase) and operating income was 0.6 billion yen (a 13.1% year-on-year increase). In domestic travel services, operating revenues increased over the same period a year ago as ANA promptly captured demand through strengthening of sales promotions for the dynamic package product Tabisaku, a recovery in turnover for ANA Sky Holidays that had been reduced during the previous fiscal year following the Kumamoto earthquakes, and steady turnover on tours to Kanto (eastern part of Japan including Tokyo metropolitan area) and Okinawa regions. In overseas travel, although turnover of ANA Hallo Tours bound for Europe and Asia decreased, turnover was strong for Hawaii where a focused effort was made to strengthen sales, resulting in an increase in operating revenues over the same period a year ago. Travel to Japan also saw a decrease in operating revenues compared with the same period a year ago due to increasingly fierce competition in Taiwan.
- ・In Trade and Retail, operating revenues for the first quarter were 33.5 billion yen (a 2.6% year-on-year decrease) and operating income was 0.9 billion yen (a 8.2% year-on-year decrease). In the retail business, operating revenues of the ANA DUTY-FREE SHOP and the ANA FESTA (airport merchandise stores) increased over the same period a year ago. Meanwhile, in the food business, while there was an increase in the turnover of processed foods, the turnover of a mainstay product decreased due to intensifying competition in the market, resulting in operating revenues decreasing from the same period a year ago.
- ・In others, operating revenues for the first quarter were 8.8 billion yen (a 5.3% year-on-year increase) and operating income was 0.5 billion yen (a 33.9% year-on-year increase) due to strong performance in the building and facility maintenance and management business and the airline security business.
- Outlook for the FY2017(April 2017 - March 2018)
- ・Although the outlook is affected by risks such as a downturn in the economy, slowdowns in some overseas economies and terrorism and conflict in Europe and the Middle East, the economic outlook suggests a continued, gradual recovery in the Japanese economy due to improvements in the employment and income environment and the effect of various government policies.
- ・Under these circumstances, ANA HD is committed to establishing a position as one of the world's Leading Airline Groups through the thorough implementation of the FY2016-2020 ANA Group Mid-Term Management Plan (2017 Rolling Strategy), which was formulated in April 2017, and which requires ANA to commit to further improvements in service quality and work to improve the airline's global profile while also developing a robust business structure through thorough cost management at the same time as engaging in rapid, timely management decision-making.
- ・In the full-service carrier business, which is the mainstay of the group's profitability, ANA has worked to maintain profits on domestic routes through stronger efforts to ensure a good supply-demand balance while expanding and improving its international network through further development of the dual-hub model for the Tokyo metropolitan region, at the same time as working to improve the group's brand recognition overseas and bolster its sales capability.
- ・In the Cargo Business, ANA has worked to maintain and improve profitability. Also, ANA HD has committed to improving profitability from non-air businesses and by inclusion of Peach Aviation Limited as a consolidated subsidiary, and it aims to establish the optimum portfolio in order to have resilience to volatility.
Taking the above factors into consideration, there is no change to the consolidated business outlook for the FY2017 as originally announced on April 28.
