In its continued efforts toward post-COVID recovery, Tokyo-based All Nippon Airways (ANA) now operates over 1,000 flights per week.
Using data from RadarBox.com, the carrier is making strong progress toward getting over that all-important 2019 figure.
Without further ado, let’s get into it…
ANA’s Numbers Strengthen Tourist Links in Tokyo…
From May 30-June 6, ANA operated 982 flights, which is an increase of 2.61% compared to the same period last year.
Such a figure is around 103 movements shy of 2019’s levels, but as you will see in the table below, the carrier has been consistently operating 1,000+ flights per week, enabling further tourist & economic benefits in Tokyo:
|Date||2019 Numbers||2022 Numbers||2023 Numbers||Percentage Difference (2023 vs. 2022)|
|May 2-9||1095 movements||981 movements||1030 movements||+4.99%|
|May 9-16||1096 movements||1022 movements||1021 movements||-0.10%|
|May 16-23||1097 movements||944 movements||1031 movements||+9.22%|
|May 23-30||1094 movements||950 movements||1029 movements||+8.32%|
For ANA, this is strong news, as it means that they can get closer and closer to achieving 2019 numbers, with the Summer 2023 season encouraging further route expansion moving forward.
Still Busier Than Competitor Japan Airlines…
It remains clear also that ANA is still busier than its other Tokyo-based competitor, Japan Airlines.
For January 15-22, Japan Airlines achieved 827 movements, based on the seven-day rolling average from RadarBox.com.
This represents an increase of 9.25% compared to the same period last year when 757 movements were recorded.
Below is Japan Airlines’ performance for January so far:
|Date||2019 Numbers||2021 Numbers||2022 Numbers||2023 Numbers||Percentage Difference (2023 vs. 2022)|
|January 1-8||548 movements||6 movements||795 movements||835 movements||+5.03%|
|January 8-15||697 movements||7 movements||752 movements||816 movements||+8.51%|
What we can see from the data above is that Japan Airlines, like All Nippon Airways, has also been able to exceed pre-pandemic levels in 2023 so far.
Based on the huge difference between 2023 and 2019’s numbers, it can be expected that this pattern will continue for the airline.
What remains clear is that ANA and Japan Airlines combined produce significant value to the economy within Tokyo.
