Airline and hotel giant let fliers “experience more”

Culinary teamwork puts fliers in mood for Hawaii before departure
All Nippon Airways (ANA) and Hilton Worldwide have teamed up in a first-of-its-kind partnership for new airline lounges and in-flight services, TTG Asia reports.
To be introduced initially on ANA flights between Tokyo’s Narita and Haneda airports and Honolulu, the Experience More partnership will start on June 1 and run to the end of the summer holiday season on August 31.
Under the program, travellers leaving Japan for Hawaii can begin their holiday before they even board the aircraft. A new menu in the airline lounge created by chefs at the Hilton Hawaiian Village Waikiki Beach Resort will offer “an authentic taste of Hawaii”.
Once on board, travellers in both economy and business on all ANA flights between Tokyo and Honolulu will be served more Hawaiian-inspired meals and given a guidebook commissioned for the partnership providing recommendations on places to eat and sightseeing spots.
The companies say it is the first part of a three-phase collaboration scheduled to run until 2017. If it proves successful, it is likely to be extended to additional routes.
