Japan's ANA Orders 20 More Boeing 787 Dreamliners

ANA 787-9 and 787-10

"ANA has grown into one of the leading airline groups in Asia by continually raising the bar for customer satisfaction and investing in the most technologically-advanced and capable fleet".

"Boeing's 787s have served ANA with distinction, and we are happy to broaden our fleet by adding a lot more of these technologically highly developed plane", stated Yutaka Ito, govt vice president of ANA and ANA Holdings, in a assertion.

Air New Zealand Ltd, a Rolls-Royce customer for its initial 787 fleet, previous year ordered GE engines for its latest order of eight planes, meaning it will also operate both types in the future. ANA is a proud launch customer and the biggest operator of the Boeing 787 Dreamliner.

ANA said it considers a range of factors when adding aircraft to its fleet, and the Boeing 787 was selected "after a thorough evaluation process determined that it would best meet ANA Holdings' goals while helping the airline boost service and hospitality".

Once all 20 of the newly ordered airplanes go into service, ANA would operate 103 787s, the firm said.

According to the airline, the Boeing 787 aircraft can "significantly" improve efficiency compared to the Boeing 777 planes that it now deploys. Until then, the company had always chosen the Rolls-Royce Trent 1000 engine, but the frequent problems may have influenced the decision.

The 787-9s will be used internationally but the-10s will target domestic

A Boeing 787 plane of the All Nippon Airways, ANA, prepares to land after a test flight at Haneda Airport in Tokyo on April 28, 2013.

The order helps update the carrier's fleet, replacing the Boeing 777 series now in operation.

ANA will use the 787-10 to replace some of its aging 777s. While the average age of these is 15.3 years and 11.3 years respectively, some individual aircraft in the fleet are over 20 years old. The airline already has 71 Dreamliners in its fleet.

Japan has always been Boeing's most solid market and ANA its most reliable customer. The 787-10s are slated for delivery starting 2022 and concluding in 2024.
