Japan’s All Nippon Airways (ANA) will resume its services to Perth from Tokyo Narita starting October 29.
Initially, the Star Alliance member will operate the Perth route three times a week, on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays.
ANA will deploy a premium-heavy Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner to Perth, featuring 48 business class seats in a staggered 1-2-1 configuration, 21 2-3-2 premium economy recliners and just 146 3-3-3 standard economy seats.
ANA’s Perth route was suspended in March 2020.
ANA will be the only airline flying between Perth and Tokyo.
In other schedule updates, ANA today said it would add an additional Narita-Singapore rotation between July 28 and August 31.
During the summer, ANA will fly four times a day between Tokyo and Singapore.
Three of the services will be on 787 Dreamliner aircraft, but the fourth will be on 767-300ER equipment with older 2-1-2 configured business cabins and no premium economy service.
Furthermore, the airline confirmed that its Narita-Dalian flight frequency would increase to daily from July 3, up from four flights a week currently offered.
Flights to Dalian will be onboard long-haul-configured 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft, too, although in a less premium-heavy configuration with 40 in business, 14 in premium economy and 192 in standard economy.
