ANA To Order Additional Eleven Boeing 787s

ANA Group, Japans largest airline group, today announces that it is placing orders for eleven additional Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft. ANA currently has 55 Dreamliners on order, thirteen of which have so far been delivered, and the new order today will take ANAs fleet of this innovative and fuel-efficient airliner to 66 in total. All eleven aircraft will be the B787-9 model and will be delivered between fiscal year 2018 and 2021. This will give ANA a fleet of 36 B787-8 aircraft and 30 B787-9 versions.

ANAs future fleet plans involve the gradual replacement of the Boeing 767 and Boeing 777-200 with the 787. The fuel efficiency of the B787-9 is similar to that of the B787-8, while it has greater seat, helping support the profitable expansion of ANAs international and domestic route networks.

ANA is the launch customer for the Dreamliner and started its first 787 operation in October last year. The aircraft is now flying eight domestic Japanese routes as well as Haneda Frankfurt. ANA also plans to launch a new route from Narita to San Jose on the US West Coast starting January next year using the 787, while the current Narita Seattle service will switch to 787 operations from October 1, and Haneda Beijing to the 787 from October 28.
