TOKYO, Sept. 30, 2019 - All Nippon Airways (ANA), will continue its quest to simplify travel for international passengers by becoming the first airline at Daniel K.

These steps will drastically speed up immigration processings and allow travelers to get an earlier start on their vacation or business in Hawaii.

Inouye International Airport eliminates long distance walks and prevents passengers from having to wait in long lines immediately after they arrive in Hawaii," said Hideki Kunugi, Executive Vice President of ANA. "ANA is always looking for ways to improve service both in the air and on the ground, and our moves to heighten convenience for travelers will go a long way in making the travel experience more enjoyable. Passengers will always come first and we will continue working with airports and other partners to meet their needs."

ANA's immigration lane will be open to passport holders of all nationalities that arrive at Daniel K. Inouye International Airport.
