All Nippon Airways (ANA) has announced that it will introduce the B787 on two new international routes. This will bring the total number of overseas ANA destinations served by the Dreamliner to eight.
Starting this autumn, the 787 will begin serving flights from Tokyo Narita to Singapore and Munich, as well as being re-introduced on the Seattle route following the worldwide grounding of 787s earlier this year. Known for better fuel efficiency, the 787 currently serves ANA flights from Tokyo to Frankfurt, San Jose, Beijing, Taipei and Shanghai (see here).
The aircraft used on the Singapore route will carry a two-class 222 seat configuration, 42 in business and 180 in economy class. The Munich and Seattle 787 will feature a two-class 158 seat configuration, 46 business and 112 economy class.
ANA also plans to double flights between Narita and Chicago in order to meet the growing demand between Asia and North America. This follows the carrier's recent increase in frequency of flights to San Jose (see here).
