All Nippon Airways (ANA) announced yesterday that it has been forced to cancel up to 113 Japan domestic flights due to mandatory inspections of the Rolls Royce Trent 1000 type engines that power the airlines’ Boeing 787 airplanes. In a statement, Yuji Hirako, president and chief executive officer of ANA, said that although the airline has been working very closely with Rolls-Royce over the past two years to minimise the impact of the issues with the engines on its flight schedule, “due to the additional mandatory inspections which were announced in mid June,we are cancelling a limited number of flights”.
