All Nippon Airways (ANA) has ordered three additional B777-300ERs from Boeing. Once delivered, the aircraft will increase the total number of 777s in ANA’s fleet to 57.
The new B777s will feature a three-class configuration with part of economy allocated as premium economy. Seat configurations have yet to be decided, but a source from ANA has revealed that the total number of seats will be between 212 and 250.
The carrier intends to use the new aircraft for international long haul routes from Haneda Airport, said Shinichiro Ito, president and CEO of ANA Holdings. This move is the latest development in ANA’s long-term plan to strategically expand its services, which will also see the airline increase frequencies to Myanmar (see here) and San Jose (see here).
