MESSAGE
from the CEO

First, I would like to express my sincere gratitude to the loyal customers of Air Japan.

Our company began as an ANA Group airline established in 1990 to operate charter flights overseas. Eventually, in 2000, our company name was changed to Air Japan, and we were reborn as an airline with regularly scheduled international flights. Now, from our home base at Narita Airport, we partially operate ANA-brand flights to and from destinations in Asia. Ever since our founding, we have always strived to maintain a high level of safety and provide high-quality services to our customers every day.

In February 2024, we will launch our new brand “AirJapan,” a product of the expertise we have accumulated over the years, but with an even closer focus on the values truly necessary to our customers. AirJapan will maintain the same safety and operation standards as ANA, using the same foundation of delivering simple services with quality and concepts unique to Japan, acting as a hybrid between a full-service and low-cost carrier for a brand-new air travel experience.

Beginning with Asian flights departing from Narita Airport, we plan to gradually expand the AirJapan brand into other parts of the globe while continuing to operate ANA flights throughout Asia as we strive to provide our customers with services from differing brands operating under one airline.

We humbly ask for your continued support and loyalty as we embark on these new challenges.
