What is BLUE WING?
It’s a brand new concept that
makes flying world-changing.
ANA, the leading airline that started out with just two helicopters
is changing what it means to fly.
Every flight you take helps support a Changemaker tackling
social problems all over the world.
In other words, every flight you take is world-changing.
You order a coffee that feels right for you. A flight should be the same. You know there's more to flying than just price and service. When you purchase your ticket on BLUE CLASS, ANA gives 1% of your airfare to Changemakers. You have the power to change the world by simply purchasing flight tickets.
We all know miles are useful for purchasing flight tickets and shopping.
Spending your miles on BLUE WING can be even more meaningful.
Take part in change in the world.
Changemakers are people who defy norms and rules - they are the people who push the boundaries to change the world for good - people with fun and positive attitudes. From health care, architecture, marine conservation, to training, there are varieties of Changemakers tackling world problems in their own unique ways.

How does Elizabeth nurture her staff?
It’s important to Build Change to encourage women, so they make sure they have female engineers in senior and management positions, because that helps to attract female engineers in the more entry- and mid-level positions. “Almost all of our leadership team in Haiti is women. Having female senior engineers and managers as role models has really helped us to recruit more women.” Support ANA BLUE WING and help Elizabeth achieve her goal.
Jack’s management style
Jack simply trusts people by default. “Partners, managers, or colleagues, you trust everybody in your organization by default. That means you believe that they are all great guys, that they're all honest and trying their best. The alternative would be to suspect them, to think low of them, to think they are lazy or incompetent, but that makes everyone very upset. Even if they are very mediocre, if you expect them to be good because you trust them, they become much better than their mediocrity. When you expect them to be really good, they either live up to your expectation, or they give up and quit. Either way, you have quality control, and you always have good people. Win-win.”

Josh, how do you nurture your staff?
“I choose really bright people - brighter than me in their fields - and encourage them to compete with their ideas.” In this way they see that they’re free to do their best, and that the best ideas win. “It encourages them, and increases their dedication and determination.” Join ANA BLUE WING and support Changemakers like Josh.
How does Jack nurture his staff?
Jack treats people as humans and teaches them to have soft skills, how to trust, how to love, how to care, how to teach, how to empower. “These are the skills we need for the future. We have to go back to all these human qualities rather than rote learning and mechanical stuff, you know?” Like this post to support Jack if you agree with him!

Elizabeth’s goals for Build Change
In the long term, Elizabeth wants to go out of business! Her goal is that no-one will die or get injured in an earthquake because their house or school collapses on them. Short term, Build Change are scaling up their prevention retrofitting programs to make existing buildings safer. Medium term, their 10 in 10 goal is for 10 million people in the next 10 years to live or learn in an earthquake-safe house or school. Like this post and help Elizabeth go out of business!
