Boeing Delivers 50th Boeing 787 Dreamliner to ANA
Boeing and ANA (All Nippon Airways) celebrated the delivery of the airline's 50th 787 Dreamliner during a ceremony today at Boeing's Everett Delivery Center.
The milestone marks yet another record for ANA as it becomes the world's first airline to operate 50 787 Dreamliners.
As part of efforts to expand its global network, ANA also announced plans to launch new routes from Tokyo, Narita to Phnom Penh, Cambodia in September this year and Mexico City, Mexico in February next year using 787 Dreamliners.
ANA became the launch customer of the 787 when it purchased 50 in 2004, and was the first to bring the airplane into service in 2011.
The airline operates more than 11 percent of all 787s around the world today and has flown an estimated 125,000 flights with the Dreamliner.
Since entering service in 2011, the 787 has flown more than 109 million passengers on more than 500 routes around the world, including more than 120 new nonstop routes made possible through its efficiency.
