ANA celebrates 60th anniversary with aircraft design contest

30 Aug 2012 by BusinessTraveller

Japanese carrier ANA is celebrating its 60th anniversary by inviting passengers to create a design which will be painted onto one of its B767-300 aircraft.

Entrants should download a form from the ANA website with a picture of a blank fuselage, onto which they can draw their design.

There are no criteria for the subject of the design – as ANA puts it “Any kind of illustration is OK!”.

Entries will be judged in three categories – 12 years and under, 13-18 years, and 19 years and over, with an overall grand winner being announced in December.

Entries must be received by September 30, and the grand winner will receive a model aircraft bearing his or her design, as well as two tickets to the unveiling event. Categories winners will also be invited to the unveiling, and in addition 50 entrants will be drawn at random to receive pairs of tickets to the event.

ANA’s history dates back to December 27, 1952, with the formation of the Nippon Helicopter and Aeroplane company. The Star Alliance carrier was the launch airline for the Boeing Dreamliner aircraft last year – for a review of the inaugural B787 passenger service between Tokyo and Hong Kong, click here.
