ANA Holdings approved 1700 billion yen order for new aircrafts.
ANA will place firm orders for 70 new aircraft worth 1700 billion at list prices with Boeing and Airbus. The order is the biggest in the airline’s history.
The aircrafts will be delivered during period of FY2016-2027 and will increase the size of the ANA fleet to 250 aircraft.
ANA HD has decided to purchase twenty Boing 777-9X, a large twin-aisle aircraft with 15% larger seating capacity, as a successor to its existing fleet of Boeing 777-300ERs. In addition, ANA HD will purchase six further Boeing 777-300ER aircraft to support the expansion of its international services until delivery of Boeing 777-9X.
ANA HD will also place fourteen additional orders for the medium-sized Boeing 787-9 aircraft. This will take its total fleet of Dreamliners to 80, confirming ANA as the world’s biggest operator of this fuel-efficient airliner.
The order with Airbus consists of 30 smaller single-aisle jets from the A320 family - seven A320neo aircraft and twenty-three A321neo aircraft, which will replace ANA’s existing B737-500 and A320ceo aircraft.
The new Boeing aircraft will be used predominantly on international routes while the new Airbus aircraft will be introduced both on domestic routes and international routes.
