TOKYO -- ANA Holdings on Tuesday stuck to its previous forecast of a 100 billion yen ($870 million) loss for the year ending in March, even though the COVID situation in Japan has turned for the worse.

The parent company of All Nippon Airways reported an operating profit for the first time in eight quarters over the October-December period of 100 million yen. ANA said domestic passenger demand had improved significantly in October after the Japanese government lifted a state of emergency.
