New In-Flight Services on ANA’s Late-Night Int’l Flights Serving Haneda to Help Passengers Sleep Soundly and Wake Up Gently
Minato Ward, Tokyo-based All Nippon Airways Co., Ltd. (ANA) will begin offering new in-flight services to help passengers sleep comfortably and wake up gently on late-night international flights arriving at and departing from Haneda Airport in Ohta Ward, Tokyo starting in the end of October.
The services will be offered on flights connecting Haneda Airport with Bangkok, Singapore and Los Angeles operating in the late-night and early morning hours. During boarding in economy class, cabin lights will be dimmed and passengers will be given aromatic cards, eye masks and earplugs to help them "rest" and "wake up gently." Prior to landing, hot meals including miso soup will be served. In addition to dim lighting and amenities to help them sleep soundly, business class passengers will have original herb tea prepared for them after waking up. Passengers will also be able to choose from light meals including a Japanese-style set, udon, soup and sandwiches.
ANA will be introducing a "newly made Boeing 767-300ER" to serve some flights on its Singapore route starting November 6. The aircraft will be equipped with newly developed reclining seats and other amenities in economy and business class to improve comfort. Passengers in all seats will be able to use a brand new entertainment system as well as universal power supplies, USB ports and iPod jacks. Check the ANA site for new aircraft flight dates and routes.
The new in-flight services will commence with a flight out of Bangkok on October 30 and will be offered on other routes starting October 31. ANA plans to gradually expand on mid-range international routes and elsewhere in addition to introducing these late-night in-flight services and new seats.
