Since the launch of their new Business Class Suite ‘The Room’ in July 2019, ANA has been picking up awards left, right and centre.


Alan Sparling describes The Room, as by far, the best business class seat on offer in the sky right now. It is no wonder that Julie Murphy, Country Manager for ANA UK & Ireland has been picking up awards on behalf of ANA during January.


Well done to ASM – Ireland too! ANA already have quite a number of supporters booked for the Tokyo Olympics 2020 on their routing DUB-FRA-TYO or DUB-MUC-TYO. Julie, Alan & Jo-Ann all thank the trade for their fantastic support towards ANA.


ANA Awards collected in January:

1. Business Travel Awards 2020 - WINNER - Business Airlines of the Year

2. The Design Air Awards - WINNER - Best New First Class Seat: Best New Business Class Seat: Most Improved Airline Brand

3. Head for Points - EDITORS CHOICE - Best New Business Class Seat

4. ULTRA Luxury Leisure Awards - WINNER - Most Innovative Airline


Not resting on their laurels, ANA, Japan’s largest and 5-star airline for seven consecutive years, and Singapore Airlines (SIA), the world’s most awarded airline, have signed a joint venture framework agreement that would deepen the partnership between the two Star Alliance carriers.


This joint venture, which is subject to regulatory approvals, aims to provide customers with more seamless flight connectivity between the two carriers and access to a wider network. It would allow ANA and SIA to further strengthen their cooperation on services between Singapore and Japan, as well as in key markets including Australia, India, Indonesia, and Malaysia.


Alan Sparling of ASM Ireland (GSA for ANA) commented that ANA began joint venture partnerships with United Airlines in 2011 and Lufthansa Group in 2012 and is excited to now see this latest development which will benefit the consumer even more.
