ANA Virtual Group is an esteemed virtual airline widely known as the only Japanese virtual airline in the Infinite Flight Community. Created in November 2019 & inaugurated in February 2020, we’ve expanded with over 45+ pilots, flying passengers & cargo domestically & globally every day.
With four subsidiaries, we fly to almost every corner of the world. Our passengers fly ANA, Peach Aviation, & AirAsia Japan, while our clients who need to send packages can do so through Nippon Cargo Airlines. It’s no wonder why we’re known as the "Inspiration Of Japan” & why we strive to surpass our standards every day. Don’t just take our word for it, see what our pilots have to say:
“The thing that I like most about ANVA is the great community they they’ve built. Everyone is always talking and having a good time in the slack channels. My most favorite thing they’ve done in their slack is they made a multilingual chat where people can speak in other languages, while also learning a bit of Japanese from one of the staff members here. It’s been a great experience for me thus far! Last but not least, it’s been awesome to fly around the scenic islands of Japan!”
ANA Virtual Group Pilot [ANVA561]
“I am a pilot here at ANVA, the IF version of ANA. I have been here for about 2 months and I have absolutely loved it. It is a really nice way for people who are new to the concept of a virtual airline. Ever since day 1, I have been welcomed by the phenomenal staff and fellow pilots here and made to feel at home. If there’s a problem, the staff immediately look into the matter and resolve it as fast as they can. ANVA has a big fleet ranging from small planes like the Q400 to big wide bodies like the B777 spread out over a vast route network around the world. Overall, I would highly recommend you to join us and fly all over Japan and the world in Japan’s best airline! Matai o ai Shimashou!”
