The US Air Force is facing up to more KC-46 tanker woes.
Oriental Air Bridge to codeshare with ANA
Nagasaki-based airline Oriental Air Bridge (ORC), the Nagasaki Prefecture and All Nippon Airlines (ANA) have signed a tri-partite Letter of Intent under which both airlines will enter a codesharing relationship. ANA will make its reservations, as well as its expertise, available to ORC. Codeshare operations will begin in the autumn of this year.
Oriental Air Bridge operates two Bombardier Q200s, seating 39 passengers, linking Nagasaki City to the outlying islands of Iki, Fukue and Tsushima in Nagasaki Prefecture, as well as to the southern mainland cities of Miyazaki and Kagoshima.
The ORC-operated services are an important lifeline for the outlying islands. With this tie-up ANA, Nagasaki Prefecture and ORC expect to improve quality and convenience for local residents and customers nationwide, and to ensure the future operation of the services.
