Air Japan

Air Japan, legally Air Japan Co., Ltd., is a low-cost airline based in Narita International Airport in Narita, Chiba, in Japan. Initially founded in 1990 as a charter carrier, the airline was relaunched in 2022 as the long-haul low-cost arm of the ANA Group. It was launched with the slogan, Fly Thoughtful. Up to this point, Air Japan had shared the same callsign with All Nippon Airways on all flights except routes to and from Seoul Incheon, Hong Kong, Taipei, and Honolulu which use the Air Japan call sign.

On 9 March 2023, ANA announced that Air Japan will be servicing flights to and from Southeast Asia starting in February 2024, using Boeing 787 Dreamliners in an all-Economy class layout. The airline is intended as ANA’s rival to Japan Airlines’ ZipAir, which competes in the same sector. The first city that the new Air Japan will operate to is Bangkok (Suvarnabhumi), starting 9 February 2024 six times a week.

All Nippon Airways (ANA)

Founded in 1952 with just two helicopters, All Nippon Airways (ANA) has grown to become the largest airline in Japan. ANA HOLDINGS Inc. (ANA HD) was established in 2013 as the largest airline group holding company in Japan, comprising 69 companies including ANA and Peach Aviation, the leading LCC in Japan.

ANA is a launch customer and the largest operator of the Boeing 787 Dreamliner, making ANA HD the biggest Dreamliner owner in the world. A member of Star Alliance since 1999, ANA has joint venture agreements with United Airlines, Lufthansa German Airlines, Swiss International Airlines and Austrian Airlines – giving it a truly global presence.
