ANA Revamps Schedule and Aircraft Allocation
All Nippon Airways announced changes to its schedule for the second half of the fiscal year. The airline plans to introduce new aircraft on some of its Asian routes, as well as launch new flights and increase service on several existing domestic routes.
On October 26, the carrier will begin operating all 14 of its weekly flights between Tokyo Haneda and Taipei with Boeing 787-8 Dreamliners. Currently, the airline operates seven of its weekly flights on the route using the Dreamliner and seven using Boeing 767-300ERs. On the same day, ANA will switch from 787-8s to 767-300ERs on its Tokyo Haneda-Manila route.
On February 1, 2015, the airline will begin using Dreamliners on 14 of its 21 weekly Tokyo Haneda-Seoul flights, which currently operate using 777-200ERs. In addition, the carrier will introduce 777-200ERs on its service between Tokyo Narita and Shanghai, using the aircraft to operate seven of its 21 weekly flights between the two destinations.
ANA will also launch new daily service between Tokyo Haneda and Nagoya on October 26, which will operate using 737-800 aircraft.
Also on that date, the carrier will add one extra daily flight to its service between Tokyo Haneda and Nagoya, Okinawa, and Okayama, as well as between Fukuoka and both Okinawa and Osaka International Airport. The airline will also decrease its Tokyo Narita-Chengdu service from seven to four flights a week on October 26.
