In Thursday’s announcement, ANA’s Executive Vice President and Group Chief Financial Officer, Kimihiro Nakahori, said,
“The sustained focus on reducing our operating expenses along with increased domestic travel, strong cargo sales and favorable conditions for growth of international traffic point to a better FY2022. While this past year has been challenging, I am extremely proud of how all our employees have responded after the past two years to excel in their duties and help position ANA Group for the future. Through their efforts and inspiration, we are confident for continued progress and further improvements across our operations.”
