All Nippon Airways (ANA) Holdings is expanding its fleet with a mixed order of 20 new B787-10 and 787-9 aircraft, expected to enter service between 2022 and 2025.
The order includes a firm order of 11 B787-10 aircraft and nine B787-9 models (with four firm order and five optional). The B787-10s, which has been selected to serve the airline’s domestic routes, will enter service between FY2022 and FY2024, with the B787-9s, scheduled for international service beginning in FY2024 and concluding in FY2025.
“Boeing’s 787s have served ANA with distinction, and we are proud to expand our fleet by adding more of these technologically advanced aircraft,” says Yutaka Ito, executive vice president of ANA and ANA HD.
“These planes represent a significant step forward for ANA as we work to make our entire fleet more eco-friendly and to reduce noise output. Introducing the 787-10 on the domestic routes will help ANA Group maintain its leadership role and improve our ability to operate as a responsible corporate citizen.”
Prior to this announcement, ANA HD had ordered 83 B787s, with 71 of those aircraft currently in service with the airline. If all 20 planes enter service, ANA will operate a total of 103 B787s by FY2025. The newly ordered planes will utilise engines manufactured by GE Aviation.
