Air Next Co., Ltd. (エアーネクスト株式会社 Eā Nekusuto Kabushiki-gaisha) was a low-cost airline based on the grounds of Fukuoka Airport in Hakata-ku, Fukuoka, Fukuoka Prefecture, Japan and a wholly owned subsidiary of All Nippon Airways (ANA). It operated domestic services from its main base at Fukuoka Airport. On October 1, 2010, Air Next, Air Central and Air Nippon Network were merged and rebranded as ANA Wings.
The airline was established in August 2004 and its first flight was on June 1, 2005 with a pair of Boeing 737-500 aircraft. Air Next received two more 737s by the end of 2006 and another three in 2007, bringing their fleet to a total of seven aircraft.
Air Next aircraft carried ANA livery with the name "Air Next" in small letters on the fuselage and a dolphin painted on each engine. Flights were operated with ANA/NH flight numbers, although Air Next had its own airline codes.
