|TOKYO, January 16, 2015 - In February 2015, ANA will launch Japan's most comprehensive in-flight entertainment system, offering a total of 351 channels with a broad range of content including international movies and overseas television series. This represents an approximately 40% increase in content from March 2014, and an approximately 400% increase in content from January 2009. In addition to the broader selection of content, ANA will also be screening programmes in total of thirteen languages, with approximately 70% of content available in multiple languages. This is in response to the growing number of international passengers who are choosing to fly with ANA, as the airline continues to expand its global flight network and demand for inbound travel to Japan increases. Following these upgrades, ANA will provide more channels, in a greater selection of languages than any other Japanese airline.
ANA is committed to ensuring the highest levels of passenger comfort and convenience and improvements to its in-flight services, including entertainment packages, supports this ambition. ANA’s excellent customer service has been recognized by SKYTRAX, the UK-based airline rating company, which has awarded ANA its prestigious 5-star rating. ANA is Japan's only airline to receive this acclaim.
