ANA adds regional freighter flights

JAPAN’S All Nippon Airways (ANA) is increasing its regional freighter operations. From 31 October, the carrier will add new flights to China, Hong Kong and Taiwan, thanks to Japan Airlines’ withdrawal from the cargo market.

“Demand for these routes has recovered remarkably during this fiscal year,” ANA said in a statement.

Tokyo Narita-Shanghai Pudong flights with ANA’s 767-300 freighters will increase from four to six weekly. Tokyo Narita-Taipei flights will rise from three to six. Tokyo Narita-Hong Kong rises from three to four flights.

New services to Dalian, Qingdao and Tianjin will also be added.

Plans to increase ANA’s Haneda-Beijing and Haneda-Shanghai Hongqiao frequencies have been put on hold, but the aircraft used has been upgraded from 767-300 to a 777-200.

ANA’s international cargo traffic rose 52 per cent in the last quarter with a corresponding 94 per cent increase in revenue.
