Air Nippon to be merged into ANA

Air Nippon (Tokyo), a wholly-owned subsidiary of ANA, will be merged onto ANA (All Nippon Airways) (Tokyo) based on the decision of both board of directors today (November 25).

Air Nippon was founded by ANA, Japan Airlines-JAL and TOA Domestic as Nippon Kinkyori Airways-NKK in March 1974 and commenced operations on October 10,1974. The name Air Nippon was adopted in 1987 and the abbreviation ANK comes from the full, somewhat redundant name Air Nippon Kabushiki kaisha.

In April 2004 Air Nippon adopted ANA’s livery and currently uses ANA flight numbers.
