ANA’s Second Boeing 787-10 for Domestic Flights Arrives at Haneda

All Nippon Airways (ANA) has announced that the second Boeing 787-10 aircraft (registration number: JA983A), designated for domestic flights starting March 27, arrived at Haneda Airport on the night of March 24.

The 787-10 model is the longest variant in the 787 series, with a total length of 68.3 meters, a height of 17 meters, and a width of 60.1 meters. It is equipped with General Electric (GE) GEnx-1B engines. In February 2020, ANA announced an order for 11 787-10 aircraft to replace the currently operating Boeing 777 models. The introduction of these aircraft to domestic routes, a first for Japanese airlines, was initially planned for autumn 2023, aiming for a fleet of four aircraft within the fiscal year, but the plan was postponed.

For international flights, the first 787-10 (registration number: JA900A) commenced operations in April 2019, and currently, three are in operation.

The cabin configuration includes 28 Premium Class seats and 401 Economy Class seats, totaling 429 seats, similar to the domestic 787-9 variant. The aircraft type is displayed as ’78K’ on the reservation screen.

According to Flightradar24, a service providing aircraft location information, flight NH9397, the ferry flight of JA983A from Japan, departed from Boeing’s facility in Charleston at 3:30 PM local time on March 21, making stops in Los Angeles and Honolulu before arriving at Haneda Airport’s spot 204 around 9:16 PM Japan time on March 24.

The first aircraft (registration number: JA981A) departed Charleston on March 18, arriving at Haneda Airport on the night of March 20, marking consecutive deliveries within a short time span.

The inaugural flight for the domestic 787-10s is scheduled for March 27, departing from Tokyo/Haneda at 10 AM and arriving at Sapporo/Chitose at 11:35 AM on flight ANA59. The aircraft will also be used for the return flight ANA62, departing from Sapporo/Chitose at 12:30 PM to Tokyo/Haneda.

ANA plans to introduce all 11 ordered aircraft by fiscal year 2026, standardizing its domestic fleet with the Boeing 787 models.
