On 16 December, ANA will launch a domestic service from Itami to Akita. The carrier will operate the Bombardier Q400 turboprops on this route.

ANA has also announced the suspension of several of its services.

On 30 October, ANA will suspend its daily service from Nagoya to Shanghai. The carrier operates the 737-700 aircraft on the route. The carrier will discontinue its daily service from Matsuyama to Chitose on the same day. ANA operates the 737-800 aircraft on this route.

"ANA could not get the flight slot it desired in Shanghai, hence, the company decided to suspend its services," said an ANA spokeswoman.
