ANA Enhances Inflight Wi-Fi on Domestic Routes

All Nippon Airways (ANA) has enhanced the Wi-Fi service it offers passengers on domestic routes with new features, including additional free onboard video content and updates to the in-flight mobile app.

For the past year, passengers onboard ANA domestic flights, have had free Wi-Fi internet access and the ability to stream a range of video content through the ANA mobile app.

ANA expanded the onboard video library on 1 March to 100 titles, including movies. The selection of films has been curated in favor of films with shorter runtimes to allow passengers to view the entire movie prior to landing.

ANA currently has 100 domestic aircraft equipped with free inflight Wi-Fi including all 24 Bombardier DHC8-Q400s.

Additionally, ANA will renew its service of ANA SKY LIVE TV from 1 April 2019, while also extending live TV access to "GAORA SPORTS" and "SPACE SHOWER TV," Japan's largest music channel.

Complementing the upgrades to the Wi-Fi service, starting 8 April 2019, ANA's in-flight mobile app will also be undergoing a revamp.

 With improved ergonomic navigation, the newly redesigned app will be better suited to interact with ANA Wi-Fi service. The app will also introduce destination guides to the app's Flight Path feature. Flight Path currently allows passengers to view the aircraft exterior from various angles while airborne but will, from 1 April, also include 100 of the top attractions to visit in Japan - as well as recommended running courses. The app will also include a new page where a renowned Japanese gourmet site will give dining tips including recommended local restaurants. The new content will initially be available only in Japanese, however, ANA has said that it plans to add English content in the future.

"Inflight entertainment is an important component of the travel experience," said Yutaka Ito, Executive Vice President of ANA. "ANA strives to provide quality service on all of our flights, from transcontinental flights to shorter domestic routes, and expanding entertainment is a crucial part of that commitment to service. Between updates to the mobile app and our increased selection of video content, passengers will be able to fully enjoy ANA's enhanced inflight Wi-Fi services."
