In January, ANA Holdings Inc., the parent company of All Nippon Airways Co., said it would introduce 30 Boeing 737 MAX 8 planes.

One Rwandan national, Jackson Musoni, who works with the UN High Commissioner for Refugees in Darfur, Sudan, was aboard the ill-fated plane and also perished in the accident.
