Five Reasons to Fly ANA

With the arrival of another new airline to YVR in 2014 – All Nippon Airways – passengers have many options when it comes to which carrier they choose to fly with. Some people might be hesitant to try out a new airline, but here are a few reasons you may want to fly ANA in the future.
5. ANA listens to its passengers
When a young boy named Tim wrote a letter to ANA about how much he loved the airline, but not the trip to Seattle required to fly with it, ANA listened. Tim and his family were invited to yesterday’s inaugural, where ANA Senior VP Yuji Hirako told Tim's story and how it helped ANA decide to fly to YVR.

4. Punctuality

ANA iwas ranked one of the top-three most on-time airlines in the world in 2013. If you value your time and want to leave as scheduled and land when you're supposed to, ANA is an airline that will get you there.

3. Amazing Aircraft
Its fleet of aircraft includes more than 50 Boeing 787 Dreamliners on order and other cutting-edge airplanes that incorporate the latest in engineering and design to make your flight faster, fuel efficient and more enjoyable. ANA was also the first airline to order and fly the Boeing 787 Dreamliner, proving it is at the forefront of aviation innovation and committed to flying the latest and greatest airplanes. We might even see one land regularily at YVR one day....

2. Support the Local Economy

With the addition of a new carrier and along with it a new route, there are hundreds of jobs created on the ground in Vancouver and the surround communities. And the trickle down is immeasurable. Think about the waittress who serves tourists dinner, the laundromat that cleanes the crew uniforms and the taxi driver who take tourists to the airport. 

1. Five-Star Service

At the end of the day, it's all about your in-flight experience. And ANA has is second-to-none when it comes to providing passengers with an unforgettable flight. In fact, All Nippon Airways was recently given a 5-Star ranking from SKYTRAX, the highest rating an airline can achieve. ANA is one of only four airlines in the world to make the grade.

Once again we wish to welcome our newest airline partner to YVR!

    About 3.5-4 hours before departure ANA opens up their check-in counters. All the counters at YVR are common use, so not exclusivelydedicated to ANA.
