Air Japan Co., Ltd. (株式会社エアージャパン, Kabushiki-gaisha Eā Japan) is a charter airline based on the grounds of Narita International Airport in Narita, Chiba in Japan. 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 Airport.[3] 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, Hong Kong, and Narita-Honolulu routes which use the Air Japan call sign.


Air Japan was established as World Air Network on 29 June 1990 and became the charter airline arm of ANA, but ceased operation since September 1995. In 2000, World Air Network was renamed Air Japan and relaunched service in 2001, the first flight being from Osaka to Seoul, South Korea.[5]
