All Nippon Airways (ANA), Japan's largest and only 5-Star airline, was named “Airline of the Year” by Air Transport World (ATW), the leading monthly magazine covering the global airline industry. This is the second time in five years that the airline has received this prestigious award. ANA is represented in Ireland by Alan Sparling (ASM).


“We are honoured to receive the Airline of the Year Award and to have been recognized for the dedicated efforts made at ANA,” said Yuji Hirako (President & CEO ANA). “This has been a remarkable year for ANA as we continued to expand internationally, deliver the highest level of customer service and differentiate ourselves in the competitive airline industry.”


Airline of the Year is the latest major honour for ANA. In the 2017 SKYTRAX Airline Awards, it was recognized for having the “World’s Best Airport Services” and “Best Airline Staff in Asia,” based on passenger surveys. Also in 2017, ANA Holdings was selected for the eighth time as a member of “Dow Jones Sustainability Asia Pacific Index” and also for the first time selected as the top of its industry “Airline Industry Lear”, scoring highest among all airlines.
