From 28 October 2012, the Japanese carrier will add a second daily flight on the route between Tokyo’s Narita airport and New York JFK airport, doubling the total weekly frequency from seven to 14 flights.
The airline said the extra flights were part of its strategy to accelerate the expansion of its international network. “Looking ahead, ANA intends to focus on the increased demand for connections between Asia and North America, and not exclusively those routes between Japan and Asia/North America,” the airline said in a statement.
The new daily service will be operated using a Boeing 777-300ER aircraft, departing Tokyo at 1645 and arriving into New York at 1515. The return service will leave JFK at 1655, arriving back at Narita at 2105 the following day.
