UNESCO partners with All Nippon Airways

Japan’s leading airline, All Nippon Airways (ANA) has announced three new initiatives to raise awareness about the Organization and support its work in the areas of education, culture and the oceans.

Renewing its partnership with UNESCO, first established in 2013, ANA has undertaken to carry UNESCO’s logo on its aircraft flying international routes; raise funds for the Organization through the sale of specific products on board and encourage its passengers to donate air miles  to UNESCO. It will also continue to promote the Organization’s work through its inflight magazine and videos.

“UNESCO is delighted to join forces with ANA, Japan’s major airline,” said UNESCO Director-General Irina Bokova “we are confident that this new partnership will contribute significantly to sharing our Organization’s values and ideals with the world.”

Welcoming the agreement, ANA President and CEO Osamu Shinobe commented: "We hope that ANA's continued support of UNESCO will help to promote their work internationally and enable them to continue their educational, scientific and cultural programs which are having a significant impact across the world."
