Expanded Collaborations on Business Class In-Flight Menus
for Flights Departing Overseas Airports


TOKYO, November 26, 2015 - ANA is working to provide even more delicious in-flight meals with options produced by renowned hotels, restaurants and chefs in various overseas destinations. Beginning with partners in Taiwan and India in 2013, from December 2014 ANA began collaborating with partners in Thailand, Singapore, China, Hong Kong and Los Angeles.

ANA is now pleased to welcome new in-flight meal partners including the Taj Mahal Hotel for flights departing India, Jing An Shangri-La for flights departing Shanghai, and also the Conrad New York for flights departing New York. ANA will also be offering its first-ever Japanese cuisine collaboration on flights departing an overseas airport, with the introduction of in-flight meals from Tofuya Ukai on flights from Taiwan.
