Japan’s All Nippon Airlines (ANA) has announced a new service connecting Tokyo and Delhi later this year. Starting 28 October 2012, the airline
will run daily operations from Tokyo’s Narita International Airport to Delhi’s Indira Gandhi International Airport. All services on the Delhi route will be operated using ANA’s Boeing 767-300ER aircraft with 202 seats – 35 in business class and 167 in economy.
By expanding its route network in the growing Asian market, ANA aims to capitalise on the projected increase in demand for indirect flights between Asia and North America via Japan, the airline informed in an official statement. The launch of Delhi flights will come just two weeks after ANA launches its new three weekly flights between Tokyo and Yangon on 15 October.
