Atlas Air and ANA to code share on the transpacific

By Damian Brett

Atlas Air and All Nippon Airways (ANA) will launch a code share partnership on flights across the transpacific in October.

Regulatory filings show that Atlas received approval for the partnership on September 28, with a launch date set for tomorrow (October 2).

“Atlas Air, Inc. hereby requests a blanket statement of authorization for an indefinite period to display the two-letter designator code (NH) of ANA on flights operated by Atlas in scheduled foreign air transportation of property and mail between a point or points in the United States and a point or points in Japan, via intermediate point sand beyond,” the application read.

The code share agreement will see ANA tender shipments to Atlas for transportation.

The initial route contemplated for the code share services is Tokyo (NRT) – Chicago – Tokyo (NRT).
