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.

This contingency plan for lengthy tarmac delays is applicable to flights operated by All Nippon Airways Co., Ltd. (ANA) and by its subsidiary Air Japan Co., Ltd. (AJX) and has been adopted pursuant to the requirements of section 259.4 of the regulations of the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT).
For all flights that depart from or arrive at U.S. airports, we will not allow the aircraft to remain on the tarmac without an opportunity for passengers to deplane for more than 4 hours. We will make the following reasonable efforts to provide convenient and comfortable service to all customers in the event that a flight is delayed.
We will make reasonable efforts to comply with this plan in the event of a diversion to any other U.S. airport. We have committed sufficient resources to implement this plan and we have coordinated this plan with airport authorities (including terminal facility operators, U.S. Customs and Border Protection, and the Transportation Security Administration) at all U.S. airports that we serve, including regular civilian diversion airports that are defined by DOT to be a “non-hub” or larger airport.
A ticketed reservation made via the ANA website, the ANA Customer Service Center or ticketing counters at US airports served by ANA may be cancelled without penalty within 24 hours after the issuance of the ticket, except for reservations made within one week of departure, which may be cancelled without penalty only if permitted by applicable fare rules.
