The Suite, ANA’s new first-class offering

Although the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Summer Games have been postponed to next year, Haneda Airport began international operations at Terminal 2, which previously only served domestic flights.

All Nippon Airways, which operates out of Terminals 2 and 3 at Haneda, made significant improvements to the terminal, including the addition of customs, immigration, and quarantine space as part of the city’s plans to prepare for travelers arriving for the Olympics.

The airline said it opened several new lounges, including the ANA Suite Lounge and the ANA Arrival Lounge.  All were designed by Japanese architect Kengo Kuma in keeping with the “ichigo ichie” or “treasure every encounter as if it were once in a lifetime” design concept also used in ANA’s new lounges at Tokyo’s Narita Airport.

Passengers departing from Terminal 2 will be able to use new self-service drops that support seven languages including English, French, and German and use smart or automated screening lanes that move bins through the screening process so passengers don’t have to.

In addition, ANA opened a separate check-in area for first-class passengers.

“The three revamped lounges underscore ANA’s commitment to superior comfort and culinary excellence,” said ANA senior vice president Masaki Yokai.

The multi-level ANA Suite Lounge, which seats 360, features a design that blends traditional Japanese design with modern influence and includes a bar level, a dining level where passengers can order dishes directly from the chef, a kids room, and a separate “napping” area.

Late last year, ANA introduced new first- and business-class suites on its Boeing 777-300ER jets that operate on flights to and from New York.
