ANA to Resume, Expand Select U.S. Routes


Citing increased demand, Japan’s All Nippon Airways will resume or increase service on select U.S. routes, beginning next month, the carrier announced Tuesday. 

ANA beginning Sept. 18 will increase Tokyo Haneda-Los Angeles service from three roundtrips per week to five, and from Oct. 30 to seven. The two scheduled flights between Tokyo Haneda and San Francisco each will expand from five per week to seven, matching the seven roundtrips per week between Tokyo Narita and San Francisco.

Service between Tokyo and Seattle will utilize Narita airport as opposed to Haneda, as previously planned, and increase from four roundtrips per week to six from Sept. 16, and to seven from Dec. 1, according to ANA. 

The carrier on Oct. 30 will resume Haneda-Washington, D.C., service with three flights per week for its NH102 flight and four times per week for its NH101 flight. The previously announced Washington, D.C. flights originally planned for Haneda—NH1 (three times per week) and NH2 (four times per week)—will instead operate via Narita beginning Oct. 30.

ANA on Oct. 30 will resume two flights between Haneda and Houston, NH113 three times per week, and NH114 four times per week. Flights NH173 (changed to four times a week from three) and NH 174 (changed to three times a week from four) will operate through Narita instead of Haneda. 

The Chicago-Haneda route that had been suspended will resume Oct. 30 with seven roundtrips per week, joining the daily Chicago-Narita flight. In addition, on the resumed flights ANA will introduce its “The Suite” first-class and “The Room” business-class cabins on both Chicago routes. The carrier first introduced the cabins in the U.S. in 2019, just prior to the pandemic.

ANA also announced several domestic and non-U.S. schedule changes.
