ANA announced a newly expanded halal menu for its in-flight meals to address the wide range of dietary needs by a growing number of international ANA passengers.
All Nippon Airways “ANA” is the largest airline in Japan by passenger numbers.
Since January 2014, ANA has partnered with Brahim’s Holdings Berhad, a Malaysia-based company and the world’s largest purveyor of halal cuisine, to provide halal-certified meals aboard ANA flights.
With a fleet of 245 aircraft, ANA flies today on 73 international routes and 117 domestic routes, carrying over 50 million passengers a year.
Through the partnership ANA Catering Service, which is responsible for all in-flight meals and beverages for the ANA Group, has obtained certification to produce halal cuisine at its facility in Kawasaki, Japan. ANA began serving halal-certified "Arare" rice crackers on all international flights from June 2015.
