ANA has announced its flight schedule for the Financial Year 2024, focusing on meeting growing customer demand and enhancing customer convenience.
Ultimately, the ANA Group hopes to maximise profits across its three primary brands: ANA, Peach, and the upcoming AirJapan, which is set to launch in less than two weeks.
International Expansion Coming
ANA says that to continue steady recovery and address the international demand it sees, expansion will be required with a significant focus on service to Europe.
ANA says it will increase flights from Tokyo Haneda to Munich and Paris in July. Both of these cities will begin seeing daily service. Additionally, ANA will resume Tokyo Haneda to Vienna flights in August.
The 2024 winter schedule will expand towards Europe, with Haneda as the core focus. ANA says Stockholm, Milan, and Istanbul will all resume, with these routes still needing finalisation.
International expansion, however, will occur much closer to home as well. ANA says it’ll offer double daily service to Beijing and Shanghai Pudong starting March 31. Meanwhile, Narita to Hong Kong will finally resume from April 16.
AirJapan will be the subject of expansion as well. This comes as the Group announces that the number of flights between Narita and Bangkok from April 30 will be daily. Again, AirJapan’s frequency increase to specific locations will strongly depend on when more aircraft will arrive.
Domestic Routes The Focus Too
Away from international service, domestic routes will also see steady overall growth to meet the current demand levels. The financial year 2024 will be necessary to resolve the ongoing P&W 1100G-JM engine inspections, which ANA believes will be resolved by the end of July.
Thanks to these latest updates involving the Pratt & Whitney engines, ANA and Peach are believed to be able to increase the seats offered compared to the 2023 Financial year.
The Changes Coming At Peach
Peach is slated to increase the number of flights offered across three domestic routes; however, temporary routes will be slated to be operated and or increased to meet ongoing demand.
Kansai to Taipei, however, will see an overall reduction in roundtrip services per week.
