ANA will deploy its Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft to Jakarta next year.
From 1 February 2014, the Japanese airline will replace its existing daily B767-300ER service between Tokyo Narita airport and Jakarta with the larger, more fuel-efficient B787, marking the first time the Dreamliner has operated a scheduled service to the Indonesian capital.
The move forms part of a series of Asian route upgrades for ANA. This starts on 1 October 2013, when ANA will deploy the Dreamliner on one of its two daily flights between Narita and Singapore. Then on 27 October, the Dreamliner will also be deployed on ANA’s daily service to Singapore from Tokyo’s Haneda airport. Also from this date, the airline will use its B787 on one of its three daily services between Narita and Shanghai.
Other aircraft changes include the deployment of a larger B777-200ER aircraft on one of ANA’s two daily flights to Bangkok, in place of the B767 that currently operates both daily services. Flights to Chengdu and Qingdao will be upgraded from a single-aisle B737 to the twin-aisle B767.
But from February 2014 ANA will remove its Dreamliner from the Narita-Beijing route, replacing the existing daily B787 flight with a B767. The airline will also completely suspend its Nagoya-Shanghai service from 27 October, while cutting its Narita-Chengdu operation from seven to four weekly flights.
