The world is full of problems. Here to face these head on are the problem solving Changemakers. They are active all over the globe, but the cost of travelling the world soon mounts up. BLUE CLASS helps alleviate this burden so that Changemakers can focus their funds on the real issues. Why not get to know the Changemakers a little better and support their cause.

Why Changemakers?

Because their stories are so inspirational and full of energy. The sort of stories that money can't buy. Buying BLUE CLASS not only supports the changemakers, it keeps their spiritually rich stories alive.

What future services can BLUE CLASS customers expect?

We are considering a number of services and surprises to show our customers what a difference their support really does make.

How did you come up with the BLUE CLASS concept?

Ever since joining the company, I have wanted to give shape to the company's corporate philosophy: “help to fulfill the hopes and dreams of an interconnected world.” Then in 2010, at a seminar outside the company, I met the changemaker John Wood. I learned that he spends 300 days of each year flying all over the world, amounting to 76 million yen in travel costs. That's equivalent to one extra primary school and a nursery in Sri Lanka. It was that conversation that provided the flash of inspiration that became the BLUE WING program, the idea of leveraging ANA's core competence to subsidize those costs. It took 4 years, but with help from inside and outside and 27 volunteers we created a workable and sustainable program. BLUE CLASS provides a way for customers to get involved.

Isn't BLUE WING just a CSR project?

While most CSR projects are normally one way donations, the BLUE WING program is all about airline and Changemakers joining hands to make the world better together. The program was designed to be sustainable and give something back to society in the long term. The program is intended to create a support circle for the Changemakers and increases awareness of the airline and bring lots of new customers into the fold through their activities.

What would you like to achieve through BLUE CLASS?

To create an ANA service that makes our customers feel positive while changing the world. That's the ultimate dream of BLUE CLASS.

BLUE CLASS is just one way in which customers can be involved in the program. Other ways are ANA mile donation and sharing on social media.
