Flight Delays and Cancellations

Airport Delay and Cancellation Information

It is sometimes necessary to delay, cancel or divert flights due to various reasons such as congestion at the airport and bad weather. In such instances, we strive to provide accurate information on the situation as quickly as possible. Information is therefore provided via airport information displays and announcements, and also on the ANA website and through the ANA Reservation and Customer Service Center.

  • If you are unable to reach your final destination on your scheduled date of arrival due to a major flight delay or cancellation attributable to ANA, we will cover the cost of accommodation/public transport/etc.
  • If a flight is delayed or canceled due to events beyond our control such as bad weather, we will assist you with making arrangements for accommodation and so on to the extent that we can. Please note, however, that you will be responsible for covering the costs incurred.
