Unlimited travel. Unprecedented human connectivity. Perpetual innovation. That’s our vision at All Nippon Airways (ANA), Japan’s largest airline. We’ve always believed that forging relationships between people will create a better society and world.
That’s why we’re partnering with innovators across the globe to imagine and create the future of travel. From unmanned aviation to hypersonic flight to commercial space exploration, experiences that were once considered unattainable are now within reach. At ANA, we’re determined to stretch the boundaries of what’s possible to connect all 7.5 billion people on the planet, not just the 6 percent served by the airline industry today.
We’re particularly proud of our partnership with the nonprofit XPrize Foundation to challenge technologists, entrepreneurs and researchers to bridge space and time through the development of real-life avatars. The $10 million ANA Avatar XPRIZE is a four-year global competition focused on building an avatar system that will allow a person’s consciousness, presence, knowledge and skills to be instantly transported.
The next wave of innovation in travel will not only enable us to transcend physical boundaries, it will fuel an unprecedented era of peace, mutual understanding and abundance for all. Join us on this journey.
