ANA expands China network
Double daily flights from Tokyo Haneda to Beijing and Shanghai
New Haneda-Guangzhou route launched

TOKYO 4 August, 2015 - ANA, Japan’s leading airline, today announces plans to increase services to China to take advantage of growing demand from business and leisure travelers. Starting from the 2015 winter schedule which begins on October 25, ANA will launch a new route from Haneda to Guangzhou and increase flights from Haneda to Beijing and Shanghai from one to two a day.

The decision to increase services from Haneda follows the successful outcome of intergovernmental talks between Japan and China in this May.

The doubling in services to Beijng and Shanghai means that ANA will be able to operate flights departing Haneda in the late afternoon, arriving early evening, in addition to existing flights which depart in the morning and arrive at lunchtime. (Details are provided below.)*

The new service to Guangzhou will be ANA’s fourth route from Haneda to major cities in China including Hong Kong. With our Narita-China network of 10 routes, this expansion will further strengthen ANA’s network linking China and the Tokyo metropolitan region. It will also help business and leisure passengers from China to connect to other destinations in Japan using ANA’s domestic network from Haneda. Narita meanwhile is being strengthened as a hub for passengers connecting to international routes between North America and Asia.

ANA will begin selling tickets and taking reservations on its new services from on Tuesday August 4.

Note: Plans are subject to receiving approval from the relevant authorities.
