ANA President Shinichiro Ito stated the carrier plans to “grab back” international travellers from Asian rivals by adding overseas services at its Tokyo Haneda Airport hub and boosting cooperation with United Continental Holdings (Bloomberg, 14-Sep-2010). He added that the opening of an international terminal at Haneda next week will enable ANA to offer easier connections between international and domestic services, adding that the new terminal is “something we’ve been eagerly awaiting”. ANA plans to boost overseas services by 15% in the 12 months to Mar-2011 adding that its antitrust immunity with United and Continental would boost the carrier's network "significantly". Mr Ito added that the carrier would codeshare on some Haneda services with Malaysia Airlines and EVA Airways to help boost traffic.
