All Nippon Airways (ANA) is set to resume its A380 flights from Tokyo Narita to Honolulu from July 1, following a hiatus since March 2020.

The airline will operate two roundtrips per week (Friday and Saturday) on the route with the ‘Flying Honu’ A380 fleet, which is made up of three aircraft each configured with 520 seats.

The airline’s first A380 entered service in May 2019, featuring a special blue “sea turtle” livery, and was followed by a second emerald green-decorated aircraft a month later and a third in October 2021 featuring an orange colour scheme.

Due to growing demand the airline will also increase the B787-9 frequencies between Tokyo Haneda and Honolulu from three to four roundtrips per week from May 28 (Monday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday).

This will then increase to five roundtrips from July 1, with flights on different days (Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Sunday).

This means that there will be daily flights between Tokyo and Hawaii from July 1.
