ANA orders additional A321s and orders 787-10 Dreamliners
ANA Holdings has ordered seven more A321 aircraft (four A321ceo with Sharklets and three A321neo), in addition to the firm order for 30 A320neo Family (seven A320neo and 23 A321neo) placed in July 2014. The latest agreement brings ANA’s total order for the A320 Family to 37 aircraft which will gradually replace its existing single aisle fleet. ANA will be the first Japanese operator of both Sharklet-equipped A321ceo and A321ne. ANA became an Airbus customer in 1987, when it ordered ten A320s. In 1995 ANA also selected the larger A321, with a total of seven orders.
ANA also announced it’s intent to purchase three 787-10 Dreamliners to add additional flexibility to the airline’s 787 fleet and five Next-Generation 737-800s to bolster the airline’s growing narrow-body fleet. ANA will become the first airline in Asia to operate the entire family of 787 Dreamliners.
