· In response to increased demand, ANA will employ Boeing 767 freighter to connect Beijing and Tokyo with two round trip flights per week beginning on July 2.
TOKYO, June 30, 2021 – All Nippon Airways (ANA), Japan's largest and 5-Star airline for eight consecutive years, will operate cargo freighters connecting Beijing Capital International Airport (PEK) and Tokyo Narita International Airport (NRT) with two round trip flights per week beginning on July 2. The Boeing 767 freighter was selected in response to increasing e-commerce and demand for PC-related parts as well as other electronic components.
“We are excited to grow our cargo operations in China with the introduction of freighters to Beijing,” said Toshiaki Toyama, Executive Vice President of ANA and President of ANA Cargo Inc. “With supply chains under pressure due to unprecedented disruption, ANA will continue doing all it can to facilitate commerce and ensure that the global economy remains on track for recovery. If demand continues to grow, we are committed to remaining flexible in our approach, adjusting flight schedules and setting up charter flights in response to trends.”
*The announced plan above is subject to the approval of relevant authorities.
While adjusting our services to meet the changing market conditions and strong demand for cargo, ANA will operate more than 2,000 cargo flights using freighter and passenger aircraft in July. ANA is committed to using its fleet of two Boeing 777 freighters and nine Boeing 767 freighters to meet demand and facilitate international commerce. Over the past year, ANA’s cargo operations have helped maintain global supply chains.
