Main sponsors

ANA, the largest airline in Japan and a member of the Star Alliance, offers a multiple award-winning on-board product, innovative technology and first-class service on its flights. This guarantees a top-class travel experience on more than 115 domestic and 80 international routes.

In addition to Paris, London and Brussels, the airline also connects the German cities of Frankfurt, Munich and Düsseldorf with Tokyo in a direct flight. Since February 2019, ANA has also been flying to Tokyo daily from Vienna. The long version of the ANA Dreamliner 787-9 takes off once a day in Munich and Düsseldorf to Tokyo. A modern Boeing 777 with a four-class configuration heads towards Japan twice a day from Frankfurt.

As one of very few airlines worldwide, ANA was again awarded the highest Skytrax ranking of five stars in 2019 for the seventh year in a row.

As the main sponsor of the Main Matsuri, ANA is passionate about bringing Japanese culture in all its fascinating facets to a broad audience.
