ANA Catering Service has been awarded a catering service contract by Finnair, the flag carrier of Finland.
Finnair specialises in flights between Europe and Asia along the shorter northern route and is the sixth oldest airline in continuous operation.
The agreement was signed in March but due to the effects of COVID-19 flights have been cancelled. Catering Services will now begin (July 03) when Finnair recommences its flights from Narita to Helsinki and from its new slots from Haneda International Airport in Q4 of 2020. It is anticipated to be the beginning of a long term positive partnership.
Takada Hideaki, senior vice president at ANA Catering Service, stated that it is a perfect match between a respected world class airline offering high levels of service and customer satisfaction and a caterer committed to high quality inflight meals and services, hygiene and safety standards, and with a proud and motivated workforce.
ANA Catering Service was established in 1990 as the in-house caterer for All Nippon Airways（ANA) providing high-quality inflight meals at Haneda and Narita airports.
ANA is working on plans to restart flights between Japan and Vietnam to be followed by Thailand, Australia and New Zealand. Domestic flights are also gradually increasing.
