ANA Unveils the Features of its Honolulu Lounge

~ Direct access to the upper deck of Airbus A380 FLYING HONU ~

TOKYO, May 30, 2018 - All Nippon Airways (ANA), Japan's largest and only 5-Star airline, is creating a new lounge in the Daniel K. Inouye International Airport in Honolulu in line with the newly introduced "ANA HAWAii" concept and in preparation for the launch of the Airbus A380 (FLYING HONU) on the Tokyo - Honolulu route (*1). The lounge will be opening in spring 2019, making it the largest lounge in the airport, incorporating the ANA SUITE LOUNGE and ANA LOUNGE (*2).
(*1) For details about the "ANA HAWAii" concept and the FLYING HONU, please refer to the following press release.
(*2) For details of the eligibility, please refer to the note at the end of the press release.

As ANA is preparing to launch the Airbus A380, it also plans to introduce a lounge where passengers can enjoy and relax every moment of their trip. The lounge will accommodate many unique features such as direct boarding access for passengers who have seats in the upper premium deck and a family area with a charming design for passengers with children. Furthermore, the design of the lounge will reflect a fusion of Japanese and Hawaiian essences, so visiting passengers are able to immerse themselves in Hawaii's relaxing reverberation before making their trip back home, while those who call Hawaii home will be able to relax in a familiar atmosphere that incorporates the warmth of Japanese hospitality, in preparation for their trip to Japan.

The lounge will be located on the third floor of Terminal 2, above gate C4 (*3). When ANA passengers who are visiting the lounge board from gate C4, which is located on the second floor, they will be able to access the aircraft directly. Passengers boarding the upper deck of the aircraft will not have to bother leaving the lounge. Instead, they can relax and enjoy every moment in the lounge.
(*3) Current gate number 29 (Main Terminal) will be renamed to C4 (Terminal 2), and direct access is available from Gate C4.

ANA has also uniquely designed the lounge to respond to its passenger's needs. As Hawaii is loved by many Japanese families and is a popular destination for their family vacations, ANA LOUNGE will feature a family area (Image 1) where parents can relax with their children. The family area will give the image of a tide pool and will have toys for the children to enjoy.

Furthermore, when guests enter the lounge (Image 2), they will be surrounded by visual elements including the Japanese traditional coffered ceiling as a motif, created with Hawaiian wood. ANA SUITE LOUNGE (Image 3) will have an exclusive and calm atmosphere where passengers can relax and ANA LOUNGE (Image 4) will dynamically depict a design of the sea, sky, and trees symbolizing Hawaiian nature on the floor, walls, and ceilings.
ANA will continue to offer opportunities for our customers to discover new aspects of Hawaii and delight them with new exciting experiences on FLYING HONU.
