TOKYO–(Marketwire – September 30, 2010) – At the meeting of the Board of Directors today, ANA has decided to change 15 of its current orders for the Boeing 787-8 aircraft to the 787-9 model. ANA currently has a total of 55 orders for the Dreamliner.

The 787-9 aircraft is an extended body version of the 787-8 model, appropriate for short, mid-haul and long-haul international routes. The model will also meet the increasing need for 400 seat-capacity aircraft for domestic routes, and will further improve the flexibility of our fleet and network planning. Furthermore, like the 787-8 model, it is a highly fuel efficient aircraft which will enable ANA to reduce operating costs and carbon dioxide emission. 

Aircraft Specifications

(*1) Width of passenger cabin at approximately 1.3m (shoulder height) from the floor of the passenger cabin

(*2) Cruising distance is the possible flight distance when loaded to maximum capacity (full seats and maximum amount of cargo loaded) on international aircraft type flying from Narita Airport.
