All Nippon Airways to start direct Tokyo-Chennai flight from October 27


Japan’s largest 5-Star airline All Nippon Airways (ANA) will begin serving a route connecting Tokyo’s Narita International Airport and Chennai International Airport from October 27 onwards. The route will be the first direct connection between Japan and southern India.

The new Tokyo-Chennai flight is part of ANA’s global strategy and the airline will deploy Boeing 787-8 aircraft from October 27, 2019, for the route. This expansion will bring ANA’s total number of cities serviced to 46.

This will be ANA’s third route offering service to India, along with flights from Narita to Mumbai and Delhi, the airline  added.

Seiichi Takahashi, senior vice president, ANA said “It is always exciting to add a new destination, but it is even more significant to be the only carrier offering connecting this growing region with Japan. “International passenger service is the main revenue generator for the ANA Group, and we hope to continue improving our market share in this dynamic sector as outlined in our Mid-Term Corporate Strategy for FY2018-2022. The new Chennai route will bring ANA’s world-class quality travel service to a beautiful and under-serviced region that is home to millions of potential new customers.”

The Narita-Chennai service forms a part of ANA’s move in increasing its Asia/ Oceania network.
