In 1953, Nakanihon Air Service (NAS) was founded. Its core business was general aviation, including scenic and charter flights, aerial photography and helicopter services. It still operates as a general aviation company.
A new affiliate company, Nakanihon Airlines (NAL), was founded in 1988, to handle NAS’s scheduled commuter services. Commuter services began operations in 1991. In 2004, ANA became the majority shareholder of NAL. In 2005, NAL was renamed to Air Central and was relocated to Chubu Centrair International Airport. In 2010, Air Central, Air Next and Air Nippon Network were merged and rebranded as ANA Wings.
