ANA All Nippon Airways will take delivery of its first Boeing 787-9 aircraft on 28th July direct from Everett.
The airline will be the first to operate the stretched model of the Dreamliner when it operates a special flight from Tokyo Haneda airport over Mount Fuji carrying Japanese and American elementary school children living in Japan. These, the airline says, are the “next generation of air passengers.”
ANA will initially operate the 787-9 on domestic routes within Japan.
International flights will follow from April 2015.
In addition to this new, fellow launch customer Air New Zealand plans to start commercial flights between Auckland and Sydney with their new 787-9s from August.
