Creditors of Skymark Airlines Inc. voted Wednesday to tap ANA Holdings Inc., Japan’s biggest airline, for help in rehabilitating the No. 3 carrier, naming it Skymark’s sponsor.

In a meeting at the Tokyo District Court, creditors rejected Delta Air Lines Inc., the only other suitor. Skymark filed for bankruptcy protection in January.

“I think the creditors understood our plan’s potential to lead Skymark’s rehabilitation in a swift manner,” said Toyoyuki Nagamine, an executive officer at ANA Holdings, parent of All Nippon Airways.
