About All Nippon Airways
All Nippon Airways utilizes Tokyo’s Haneda Airport (HND) which is much closer to downtown Tokyo than Narita (NRT) airport making it more convenient if you need to travel to Tokyo. Traveling through Haneda Airport (HND) means that after a long international flight, passengers don’t have to take a long taxi cab ride. All Nippon Airways reports 32% of their international revenue comes from flights between Japan and North America. All Nippon Airways is headquartered at the Shiodome City Center in Minato, Tokyo. Before this new modern building, ANA was headquartered on the grounds of the Tokyo International Airport in Ota, Tokyo.
Most of ANA’s international destinations focus on business routes. These are the most profitable routes for the airline. In fact, the only remaining resort routes are from Haneda Airport (HND) and Narita Airport (NRT) to Honolulu, Hawaii.
The airline receives high marks for cabin amenities in many polls. Part of their high rankings in the airline polls every year is due to their luxurious cabin features like the fully lie-flat bed in business class and their nearly completely enclosed first-class suite seats. Even their economy class offers fixed shell back seats. They were the first to launch a new in-flight entertainment system that has iPod connectivity built-in. ANA introduced new lounges for first-class and their Mileage Club’s Diamond Service elite members. They are the only airline to offer women’s only lavatories on international flights. In first and business class the lavatories have bidets.
ANA also has extended bus services to get to their flights. They had a dedicated shuttle bus from Dusseldorf to Frankfurt Airport (FRA). For more information on All Nippon Airways first class amenities and first class seats, check the All Nippon website or consult with your travel agent.
