ANA Holdings will add 20 Boeing 787 Dreamliner Jets to their fleet


Japanese airline group ANA Holdings has announced they will acquire up to 20 more 787 Dreamliner airplanes. Valued at over $5 billion, the agreement with Boeing includes eleven 787-10s, one 787-9 and options for five 787-9s. There are also plans to acquire three new 787-9 planes from Atlantis Aviation Corporation.

“Boeing’s 787s have served ANA with distinction, and we are proud to expand our fleet by adding more of these technologically-advanced aircraft,” said¬†Yutaka Ito, executive vice president of ANA and ANA HD. “These planes represent a significant step forward for ANA as we work to make our entire fleet even more eco-friendly and further reduce noise output.”

The Dreamliner 787-10 are the most fuel-efficient models, with 25% better fuel efficiency per seat compared to older airplanes in its class thanks to their ANA GE’s GEnx-1B engines. ANA is in a class by itself as the world’s biggest 787 operator with 71 airplanes in its fleet and 12 more to be delivered prior to the latest agreement.
