International expansion sees ANA add two new 787 routes

All Nippon Airways (ANA) stated (04-Jul-2013) it will introduce the Boeing 787 onto two new international routes, bringing the number of overseas destinations it serves with the 787 to eight. From this autumn, ANA will begin operating the 787 from Tokyo Narita to Munich and Singapore and will also re-introduce the aircraft on its Narita-Seattle route. The 787 already serves ANA routes from Tokyo to Frankfurt, San Jose, Beijing, Taipei and Shanghai. The increase in 787 services is part of an international expansion plan that will also see ANA double the number of services between Narita and Chicago to 14 times weekly to meet the growth in demand for connections between Asia and North America. In addition, ANA is introducing a larger sized aircraft onto services between Narita and Shanghai. These changes will take place from following dates:

  • Chicago and Munich: From 01-Sep-2013;  
  • Seattle: From 20-Sep-2013;  
  • Shanghai: From 30-Sep-2013;
  • Singapore: From 01-Oct-2013.

Changes are as follows:

  • Tokyo Narita-Chicago: Effective 01-Sep-2013, frequency increases from daily to twice daily with 777-200ER aircraft;
  • Tokyo Narita-Munich: From 01-Sep-2013, 787-8 replaces 777-300ER on daily service;
