All Nippon Airways (ANA) has announced that it will resume services to select cities in Asia, Europe and North America, owing to increased passenger demand.
The airline has adjusted its schedule for December 1, 2020, to January 31, 2021, with changes affecting 106 flights serving 10 routes in the network. ANA will operate a total of 1,050 flights in December, and 963 flights in January.
In December, ANA will increase flight frequencies on the return segments currently operated from select cities in South East Asia, along with the round-trip services to Singapore. The airline will increase its Narita-Singapore flights from three-times weekly to seven-times a week.
For its services from Vietnam, the airline will increase its flights on return flights from Ho Chi Minh and Hanoi to Tokyo with 7 flights per week. The routes that will increase frequency include the Ho Chi Minh-Narita, Ho Chi Minh-Haneda, and Hanoi-Narita. However, the inbound flights departing Narita to the two cities remain suspended.
Additionally, ANA will offer two round trips per week on the Narita-Phnom Penh route, and three flights per week on the Narita-Yangon route.
In addition to its regularly scheduled flights, ANA announced it will operate special flights from cities in the US and Europe back to Japan. The cities included are San Francisco, Houston, and Dusseldorf in Germany.
ANA will operate two special flights from San Francisco and Houston to Nagoya in December. The carrier will operate the special San Francisco-Nagoya flight on December 20 while the Houston-Nagoya flight will operate on the following day (December 21).
ANA will operate a service from Narita to Dusseldorf on December 19, December 23, January 5, and January 10 owing to high passenger demand during the holiday season.
The carrier states that it will “continue to monitor local immigration restrictions and quarantine guidelines as well as demand trends and travel viability”, using this information to plan the resumption of certain routes.
