“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,” said Seiichi Takahashi, Senior Vice President of ANA. “International passenger service is the main revenue generator forthe 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.”

With a rich history and distinct cultural identity within India, Chennai is full ofcelebrated attractions such as grand Hindu temples,breathtaking architecture and ancient ruins that are registered on UNESCO’sWorld Heritage List. Chennai is also home to India’s second largest harbor and its manufacturing base has earned it the nicknamethe “Detroit of India.” Chennai’s central role in India’s automobile industry means that the Narita – Chennai flight can also be used to transport cargo in addition to passengers.

ANA is continually seeking out new ways to better serve customers worldwide.One approach to this goal is by expanding its travel network to reach currently un-served destinations. By providing new routes and enlarging its reach, ANA is working tomake travel as safe, pleasant and convenient as possible for as many people as possible.
