All Nippon Airways (ANA)
On Oct. 30, All Nippon Airways (ANA) began service from New York’s JFK to Tokyo’s Haneda. To commemorate this new route, a ceremony was held at the departure gate in JFK’s Terminal 7 on the day of the inaugural flight. On hand was ANA Senior Vice President, Hideki Kunugi, who shared his sentiment of, “We’ve finally been able to make the long awaited JFK to Haneda flight a reality. Going forward you can choose between going to Haneda or Narita, depending on whether you want to arrive directly into Tokyo or whether you want to use a Chiba arrival to travel to another Japanese domestic location or to go somewhere else in Asia.” ANA plans to continue proactively expanding its routes to further increase its convenience for customers.
