The partnership, which is entering its 4th year, has now been expanded. West will be working closely with the programming team at ANA, leveraging its ANA content portal powered by WE by West to deliver the best Hollywood, western, international and south Asian content for their passengers.

This latest RFP gave us the ability to showcase our full strength, and this result is a testament of our entire team commitment to deliver financial flexibility while increasing content options for ANA passengers.”
