Price rises to 16,000 yen on April 25
A ticket is purchased on April 26

A "Basic Fare" ticket departing on June 20 is purchased on April 20 for 15,000 yen
Price raises to 16,000 yen on April 25

⇒ The fare effective on the day of ticket purchase is applied, so
the additional 1,000 yen fare amount is not added

  • Example of a Price Increase

(Example 4)
A "Basic Fare" ticket departing on June 20 is purchased on April 20 for 15,000 yen
Price falls to 14,000 yen on April 25

⇒ The fare amount at the time the ticket purchase is made applies, so
the 1,000 yen fare difference is not refunded

  • Example of a Price Decrease

2. Cases in Which Boarding is Changed from a Peak Period to a Normal Period after Purchase

If you are changing the boarding date of a ticket with a fare where rebooking is permitted, a new fare based on the fare of your new boarding date on the day of your initial purchase will be applied.
When changes are made between peak and normal periods, the difference in the fares will be charged or refunded as appropriate.

(Example)
A "Flex Fare" departing August 10 (peak period) is purchased on June 10 for 33,000 yen
The boarding (departure) date is changed to September 1 (normal period) on July 30

  • ⇒ The valid fare amount for the new boarding date (September 1) based on the flight ticket purchase date (the Date of Applicable Fare [June 10]) is 30,000 yen, so
    the difference of 3,000 yen is refunded
  • Changes from a peak period to a normal period

Cases in Which the Flight Ticket Purchase Date is Different from the Date of Applicable Fare

Please note that in the following cases, the flight ticket purchase date and "Date of Applicable Fare" are different.

1. Cases in Which One of the Following Payment Methods is Used

  • ・Payment is made by printing out a payment slip for convenience store payment
  • ・When Internet Banking is used and remittance of payment is made directly from a financial institution
  • ・Bank remittance is used (excludes Pay-easy and ATM payments)
  • ⇒ The applicable fare amount is the amount stated at the time of payment method selection
  • *Please note that the actual amount is not the fare amount at the time of payment (remittance).
  • Example of a Price Decrease
  • *When you pay at the register after issuing an application ticket or receipt slip from a multimedia terminal set up in a convenience store, the applicable fare amount is the amount that appears on the terminal screen.
    The fare amount shown on the register screen also applies when you pay at the register after obtaining an online payment number from ANA's website or mobile website.
  • *When using Internet Banking, if an online remittance is made from a dedicated remittance site (Wellnet Corporation), the applicable fare amount is the amount stated by that remittance site.

A return trip departing on June 20 is then added on May 30, changing the fare to Flex Roundtrip Fare

  • ⇒ The Date of Applicable Fare is set independently for each flight, so the Date of Applicable Fare for the added return trip fare is May 30
  • *The Date of Applicable Fare for the outbound flight changed from a Flex Fare to Flex Roundtrip Fare remains unchanged (May 10)
  • Example of a Return Trip Added after the Purchase of a Flex Fare Ticket
