ANA, the First Japanese Airline to Launch B777 Freighter

On July 2, All Nippon Airways (ANA), Japan's largest and 5-Star airline for seven consecutive years, is introducing the Boeing 777 Freighter (777F) to its fleet today to aid with increased cargo transportation demand in Asia and North America. The start of operations for these aircraft is the culmination of expansion plans.

ANA received its first 777F, nicknamed "BLUE JAY," on May 24, 2019 at Tokyo Haneda International Airport. The specially-designed aircraft has the ability to transport large items ranging from aircraft engines, to semiconductor manufacturing equipment as well as cargo requiring a high degree of care such as lithium batteries and pharmaceuticals. 

From July 2 through Aug. 25, 2019 the BLUE JAY will operate connecting cargo flights from Narita International Airport to Shanghai Pudong International Airport with a stop at Kansai International Airport. 

Starting from Aug. 26, 2019 ANA will offer a direct cargo flight from Narita International Airport to Shanghai Pudong International Airport.

"The Boeing 777F aircraft elevates the ANA fleet to a new level," said Toshiaki Toyama, President of ANA Cargo INC. "These 777Fs are significantly larger than the Boeing 767F models used to ferry cargo in Asia, giving ANA additional flexibility in how the aircraft are used. The aircraft will aid in the expansion of ANA's services to include a whole new set of customers and increase ANA's ability to safely transport larger cargo."

ANA currently boasts a strong Asian flight network centered around the Okinawa freight hub and is planning to expand its network in North America this year with the addition of large-scale cargo flights complementing its current passenger air travel options. 

Starting on Oct. 27, 2019 ANA will use 777F to transport items from Narita International Airport to Chicago O'Hare International Airport.

Furthermore, ANA is providing bespoke "Prio Sensitive" service for delicate cargo being transported by its 777F aircraft. This service offers an additional layer of protection to fragile cargo, such as semiconductor manufacturing equipment and medical equipment. ANA is also offering a unique "Prio Vehicle" service that will allow for the transportation of a variety of vehicles ranging from compact cars to SUVs.
