All Nippon Airways (ANA) is aiming to boost cargo sales by as much as seven-fold by 2015 to US$6.4 billion byjoining with Shanghai Airlines.

Establishing Shanghai as its eastern cargo hub on the mainland, ANA is eyeing other destinations in the mainland’s southwest and northeast to drive growth in cargo.

Mainland cargo sales comprise 20 per cent of ANA’s air freight sales, compared with less than 10 per cent for Hong Kong and 50 per cent for Japan.

ANA is in talks with Shanghai Airlines for further co-operation in the cargo sector. Currently ANA has five cargo flights a week from Osaka’s Kansai International Airport to Shanghai and four return flights to Narita.
