ANA Holdings voted at its board meeting to place an order for a total of 48 aircraft, which include 30 Boeing 737 MAX 8 and 18 Airbus A320neo. Deliveries are scheduled from FY2021 to FY2025.

The decision was based on the economic growth of Asia and emerging countries, with demand in the Asian aviation market. ANA and Peach Aviation each selected its own optimum aircraft to fit its strategy to further grow. The specific markets that will be served by the new order have not been finalized.

Boeing 737 MAX 8, a first for a Japanese airline, is more spacious compared to the current aircraft and creates a comfortable atmosphere. The aircraft is also fuel efficient and is expected to improve the efficiency by approximately 15%. Given the plane’s benefits to the domestic market, it will succeed the current Boeing 737 NG series. ANA HD decided to place 30 aircraft on order, including 10 optional.

The Airbus A320neo, which currently serves ANA international routes, was chosen for its excellent fuel efficiency and cruising performance and will support Peach’s current strategy. An order for 18 aircraft will be placed.
