ANA strengthens COVID-19 safety measures
All Nippon Airways (ANA) will work with medical advisory firm Nihon Stery, which will perform a comprehensive evaluation of ANA’s procedures and recommend on how best to ensure the safety and comfort of all ANA passengers and employees.
“With the realities of the COVID-19 situation and its monumental impact on every airline in the world, we need to continually reevaluate our practices to operate in a safe and responsible manner,” said Executive Vice President Hideki Kunugi. “I am proud of the leadership role ANA has taken in creating safety protocols that go beyond the industry standard, and look forward to working with Nihon Stery to raise our efforts even further.”
Founded in 1987, Nihon Stery provides evidence-backed guidance to medical institutions on how to operate efficiently. As part of its partnership with ANA, Nihon Stery will advise ANA on the efficiency and safety of its procedures, recommending specific disinfectants for use in a range of settings. In addition, Nihon Stery will help guide ANA’s communications efforts so that its health and safety messages are understood by the general public.
With safety as ANA’s top concern, the Care Promise program has gone above and beyond the recommendations from public health officials in order to keep passengers and employees healthy. ANA has also contributed to the fight against COVID-19 by engaging in aid programs to support medical professionals, including the contribution of $200,000 toward healthcare workers.
