ANA to fly cargo to In­dia

Cargo Talk - - Front Page -

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.
