ANA Group announced (21-Sep-2012) it is placing orders for 11 additional Boeing 787-9 aircraft, valued at approximately USD2.7 billion at list prices. ANA currently has 55 787s on order, 13 of which have so far been delivered, and the new order will take ANA’s fleet of 787s to 66 in total. All 11 aircraft will be the 787-9 model and will be delivered between FY2018 and FY2021. This will give ANA a fleet of 36 787-8 aircraft and 30 B787-9 versions. ANA’s future fleet plans involve the gradual replacement of the 767 and 777-200 with the 787. ANA is the launch customer for the 787 and started its first 787 operation in Oct-2011. The aircraft is now flying eight domestic Japan routes as well as Haneda–Frankfurt. ANA also plans to launch a new route from Narita to San Jose in Jan-2013 using the 787, while the current Narita–Seattle service will switch to 787 operations from 01-Oct-2012 and Haneda–Beijing to the 787 from 28-Oct-2012.
