ANA pins hopes of cargo profit on Naha airport

ALL Nippon Airways (ANA) is to use Naha Airport, in Japan’s southern-island province, Okinawa, as its cargo hub. By doing so, the company says that it will be able to turn its ailing cargo business around so it can make a profit within two years.ANA’s president, Shinichiro Ito, said: “Asian economies including China are expected to expand over the medium and long terms. We intend to ensure future growth of our cargo transport business by using Okinawa as the hub.”He added that Okinawa’s location closer to mainland Asia would give the company a competitive advantage as it will link Japan’s three international airports – in Tokyo and Chiba and Osaka – with those in Bangkok, Seoul, Shanghai, Hong Kong and Taipei.
