ABOUT
ANA SPACE  PROJECT

We are progressing toward making the space business a reality, with the hope that people will be able to enjoy space travel provided by ANA one day.

MISSION & HISTORY.

ANA was established in 1952 as the first Japanese commercial helicopter operator and started jet aircraft operations in 1964 (B727-100). In 1986 we expanded our business into international flights.

 

After expanding to destinations all over the world, the slogan “Next stop, space” was written on the back cover page of the ANA Long-Term Strategic Plan in 2015.

 

To make this a reality, the ANA Space Project was established in January 2018. Project members include various airline business specialists such as Pilots, Cabin Attendants, Maintenance mechanics, Flight Operations, Marketing, Purchasing and Business planning professionals.   

We are growing closer to “Shooting for the Stars” every day.
