TOKYO -- Airline operator ANA Holdings will set up a food court dedicated to Japanese fare in Singapore's Changi Airport as early as November.

Unit All Nippon Airways Trading will create a joint venture with a local business to operate the food court, whose 700-plus sq. meters of space will be able to accommodate 300 seats. The venture will run six eateries there under franchise contracts with Japanese restaurants. Investment is estimated at 200 million yen ($1.8 million).

Target customers include travelers and local residents. Fresh seafood bowls, okonomiyaki pancakes and other dishes will be available. Customers will be able to order at multiple restaurants and pay for everything at once. ANA aims for annual sales of 450 million yen from the operation.

As more travelers from Asia visit Japan, people look for Japanese food even after returning home. The All Nippon Airways parent sees the food court as one way to feed that demand. Few airlines operate food courts abroad.

All Nippon Airways Trading opened a Japanese complex in Singapore back in summer 2015. For the food court, the company will consider offering mileage program perks.
