ANA readies new cargo hub at Naha

Date Posted: 2009-08-20

Naha International Airport will become an international cargo freight center starting in October, when All Nippon Airways puts ten special cargo planes into operation with its new business.

All Nippon Airways will open its new central hub terminal in Okinawa, flying eight cargo routes, including three within Japan. ANA, the Nomura Business Research Center says, will boost local employment by some 3,400 employees as it operates the new freight business. ANA will use ten Boeing 757 freightliners to serve the eight routes operating six days per week.

Five international routes will connect between Okinawa and Shanghai, Seoul, Hong Kong, Taipei and Bangkok daily except Sundays. Three domestic routes will fly to Haneda and Narita Airports in Tokyo, and to Kansai Airport in Osaka.

Flights will arrive in Naha about midnight, after which customs agents and customs brokers will process the freight and prepare it for onward shipping. Outbound flights will also take place during overnight hours. The new services boost ANA’s bid to become an international parcel delivery service powerhouse. The airline and Okinawa Prefecture have been working closely to get the new terminal into operation.
