ANA will discontinue its daily B787-8 service between Tokyo Narita and Paris from October 25, the airline confirmed today.
In a statement to our sister publication Business Traveller Asia-Pacific, the Japanese carrier said the cancellation reflects reduced demand on the route.
A spokesperson said: "To match with market needs, we decided to cancel our services between Narita and Paris from October 25. Haneda-Paris will continue to operate."
Earlier this week, the Star Alliance member announced it will launch a new route from Tokyo Narita to Brussels (see news, June 2) among several other new additions this year, including Houston and Kuala Lumpur.
The daily flight to Paris departing from Haneda will continue to be operated by a larger 787-9, and sees NH215 depart at 1040, arriving at 1515 in Paris the same day. Return flight NH216 departs Paris at 2110 and arrives in Tokyo at 1705 the following day.
