ANA Launches Its First Operation of the Boeing 777F Large Cargo Aircraft to Kumamoto Airport

ANA Cargo (Boeing 777F)

All Nippon Airways (ANA) will commence its first operation of the large cargo aircraft, Boeing 777F, to Kumamoto Airport on March 29.

The operation is a collaborative effort with Kumamoto Prefecture and Kumamoto International Airport, in anticipation of regularizing flights in response to the robust demand for cargo, especially following TSMC’s construction of a semiconductor factory in Kikuyo, Kumamoto. This initiative aims to accommodate the increase in logistics through airport handling, electronic customs clearance systems, and verification of the transport processes of the cargo companies.

ANA, foreseeing the international transportation demand related to semiconductors, had introduced the NACCS (Nippon Automated Cargo and Port Consolidated System) to Kumamoto Airport in October 2023, enabling streamlined customs procedures. This marks ANA’s first utilization of NACCS for import customs operations.

The Boeing 777F aircraft, two of which are owned by ANA and started operations in July 2019, boast a cargo capacity of approximately 100 tons, capable of transporting large cargoes such as semiconductor manufacturing equipment and aircraft engines.
