ANA to become first A320neo operator in Japan

ANA Holdings has finalized an order for 30 A320neo Family aircraft (seven A320neo and 23 A321neo). The initial agreement was announced in March 2014. The aircraft will be part of ANA Holdings fleet development and modernisation strategy to replace its existing single-aisle fleet. Deliveries will start from 2016.

Shinichiro Ito, President and CEO of ANA Holdings said: “The aircraft we have selected will enable us to modernize and expand our fleet further as we seek to become one of the world’s leading airline groups. These new aircraft will give us maximum flexibility and improved fuel efficiency and will allow us to meet the growth in demand, both internationally and in our domestic Japanese market.”

“I’m delighted to welcome ANA as the A320neo’s first Japanese customer, and see the growing relationship between our two companies”, said Fabrice Brégier, Airbus President & CEO. “In addition to ANA taking full benefit from the A320neo’s efficiency and reliability, the deal also accelerates Airbus’s expansion in Japan – one of our main ambitions for the next decade”.
