ANA Holdings Allows Passengers to Donate Miles for Typhoon Aid

All Nippon Airways Premium Economy

ANA Holdings (ANA HD) is encouraging passengers to offer resources to those affected by Typhoon Faxai by donating their ANA Mileage Club miles, which will be converted into Japanese yen. ANA HD has already announced a donation of 2 million yen to Chiba Prefecture in recovery efforts and will be donating an additional 3 million yen to the Japanese Red Cross Society (JCRS) to help support victims of the disaster. In addition to offering financial aid, ANA HD provided material support such as drinking water, meals and bathroom facilities to those impacted by the typhoon.
ANA Mileage Club Members are now able to donate a portion of their existing miles to the JRCS to aid in recovery efforts. ANA HD will donate one yen for every mile that passengers donate to the JRCS. Until October 31, those wishing to make donations can do so at Japanese and English webpages. A similar campaign was launched in 2017 to support communities in northern Kyushu affected by torrential rainfall. ANA Group employees were also asked to make donations, which would be added to the company’s total aid package.
On September 12, ANA Group delivered biscuits and portable toilets to the Yokoshiba Hikari Town in Sanbu District. Additionally, the company worked with the Narita International Airport Corporation to provide 6,500 2-liter PET bottles for drinking water and 6,500 portable toilets to the towns of Shibayama, Tako and Kanzaki in Chiba Prefecture on September 11 and 12. ANA Group provided further support to Tako Town on September 18 by providing hot water to evacuation centers. In addition to disaster response leadership, ANA Group has provided hot water to those affected by natural disasters in the past, offering this support to victims of the Niigata-Chuetsu Earthquake in 2004, the Great East Japan Earthquake in 2011 and the Kumamoto Earthquake in 2016.
