100,000th Passenger to Fly ANA 787 this Weekend

All Nippon Airways of Japan is ready to reach a milestone, as Japan’s largest airline and launch customer of the Boeing 787 Dreamliner, will this weekend celebrate carrying more than 100,000 passengers on the innovative aircraft since the carrier took delivery two months ago.

The landmark number of 100,000 is expected to be reached when ANA Flight NH 686 takes off from Hiroshima airport bound for Tokyo-Haneda on Sunday, 15 January.

Boeing’s 787 Dreamliner has been a success since it entered service on domestic routes on the 1st of November last year and bookings for these flights have remained high.   Load factors on ANA’s 787 routes to Okayama and Hiroshima have reached approximately 88%, or about 20% higher than loads on ANA services between these two destinations last year.

Customers who have flown on an ANA 787 service have provided positive feedback about both the flight and experience. While these have been short domestic flights, the 787 will soon begin long-haul flights to Frankfurt.

ANA, which has ordered a total of 55 Dreamliners, will launch its first scheduled international routes using the 787 this month, with services commencing to Beijing on Saturday, 14 January and to Frankfurt on 21 January.

According to ANA, inaugural 787 Dreamliner flight from Tokyo to Frankfurt (FRA) is nearly completely full and reservations through the rest of the month remain high. ANA will start with three Dreamliner services a week to Frankfurt and will trial the 787 on the Tokyo-Haneda (HND) to Beijing (PEK) route during January.

Another winner has been the dispatch reliability being similar to customer demand. Customer demand on 787 Dreamliner flights

is 96.3% while on-time dispatches for ANA Group have averaged 96.5% over the same period.
