ANA to fly cargo to India
All Nippon Airways ( ANA) plans to add cargo routes to India to tap the South Asian demand for car parts and electronic components.
The carrier plans to add two Boeing 767 freighters to its fleet of 12 aircrafts by March 2017, to accommodate the expanded service, said Akira Okada, ANA Cargo President.
Rather than round- trip flights, the Tokyo-based company is considering triangular routes to better capture demand between regions along the way. ANA Cargo is expanding operations after ANA Holdings spun off the freight and logistics business as a wholly owned unit. ANA intends to serve Japanese demand for Indian textiles and garments, while sending car parts and electronic to South Asia, said Hiroki Takano, Manager for general administration at the carrier’s cargo unit.
