TOKYO, Jan. 18, 2022 - ANA HOLDINGS INC. (hereinafter "ANA HD") has announced its flight schedule for fiscal year 2022 (FY2022).
- • With the new trends in demand amid COVID-19, ANA HD is pursuing transformative measures to shift to a new airline business model. In fiscal 2021, ANA transferred the operation of select routes from ANA service to Peach Aviation Limited (hereinafter "Peach"), which has strengths in catering to leisure demand, and introduced codeshare flights by ANA on Peach operated flights. Developing the FY2022 flight schedule collaboratively enables the ANA Group to offer the best mix of ANA and Peach services depending on route and flight schedule. ANA and Peach will aim to further improve the overall profitability of the ANA Group by leveraging and complementing each other's strengths.
- • For domestic routes, ANA and Peach together plan to offer the same amount of available seat kilometers (ASK) as planned at the beginning of fiscal 2020 before the COVID-19 pandemic, as we forecast a recovery in demand. ANA will flexibly capture demand by utilizing larger-sized aircraft, deploying aircraft for international routes, and offering additional flights. Peach will increase flights to capture demand for leisure travel, which is expected to recover at an earlier stage, as ANA and Peach will leverage their strengths to bolster the ANA Group network.
- • For international routes, ANA and Peach will continue to assess border measures in countries and future demand trends. ANA will strive to maximize revenue per flight, for example by capturing connecting passenger demand from Asia to North America as well as cargo demand by temporarily shifting routes from Haneda to Narita. At the same time, ANA will respond flexibly by assessing the flight schedule on a monthly basis according to demand trends. Peach will gradually resume the operation of international routes based on recovery in demand, especially inbound travel to Japan.
- • For the freighter routes, ANA will maximize the use of its 11 freighters through its network to operate charter flights and additional flights along with regularly scheduled flights to drive profitability. We will also utilize passenger aircraft to operate cargo flights in order to flexibly capture demand.
- • In order to accurately assess fluctuations in demand amid the impact of COVID-19 and to respond flexibly, ANA and Peach will continue to announce updates to the flight schedule on a monthly basis, and when demand is expected to recover, appropriate action will be taken by utilizing large-sized aircraft and increasing the number of flights.
The key points for the FY2022 are as follows:
- • Based on demand trends and market environment, ANA plans to adjust the number of flights on the following routes. To cater to the convenience of our customers and maintain an appropriate supply and demand balance, we will continue to adjust the flight frequency and operate select routes under a temporary schedule for specific date ranges.
- • At Chubu Airport (Nagoya), while Peach is expanding its network to capture new demand, ANA will be increasing flights on select routes to capture business demand, as part of an initiative to optimize the Group network.
- • As the impact of COVID-19 continues to affect our business, we will continue to monitor demand trends and provide updated flight schedules on a monthly basis.
