29 August 2016

New aircraft to introduce premium economy seats to Tokyo-Delhi passengers.

Japan’s All Nippon Airways (ANA) will start flying its Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft to Delhi this winter.

Effective 30 October 2016, the airline will deploy its B787-8 Dreamliner on all of its daily flights between Tokyo’s Narita Airport and Delhi’s Indira Gandhi International. This will replace the older B767-300 aircraft that currently operates this route.

Then from 1 December 2016, ANA will upgrade the route once again, deploying its larger B787-9 Dreamliner to Delhi. The arrival of this twin-aisle jet will also mark the introduction of premium economy seats on the route.

ANA will also deploy the B787-9 Dreamliner on its Narita-Mumbai route from mid-February 2017, in place of the B787-8.
