Air Japan Co., Ltd. (株式会社エアージャパン Kabushiki-gaisha Eā Japan) is a charter airline based in Higashikōjiya, Ōta, Tokyo, Japan.[2] It operates scheduled services under the ANA brand. It should not be confused with Air Nippon, another ANA subsidiary, or Japan Airlines (JAL), ANA's competitor. Its main base is Narita International Airport.[3] In addition to its headquarters, Air Japan also has offices at Shiodome City Center in Minato, Tokyo.[2] It was announced on 2 April 2010 that Air Japan and ANA & JP Express will merge, with Air Japan being the surviving company.[4] Air Japan uses the All Nippon call sign on all flights except the Seoul Incheon and Narita-Honolulu routes which use the Air Japan call sign.
