Japanese Airlines (JAL) and All Nippon Airways (ANA) have announced changes to routes, flight frequencies and fleet plans for the remainder of this financial year.
JAL will launch two new routes with the Dreamliner, as well as deploying the aircraft on existing routes.
The B787-8 will be used on the new non-stop San Diego–Tokyo route in December, as well as on direct flights between Tokyo Narita and Helsinki from March 2013.
The aircraft will also be used for an additional daily service between Narita and Singapore, set to begin from October 28, increasing weekly flights to the city from 14 to 21.
JAL will also increase flight frequency to New Delhi from five to seven to 7 weekly round-trip flights.
ANA, meanwhile, said it would introduce new routes between Tokyo-Narita and Yangon, New Delhi and San Jose, as well as additional flights to New York.
ANA said it plans to introduce the Dreamliner on a wider range of international and domestic routes “to improve competitiveness”.
From October, ANA will introduce the B787 on its Narita–Seattle and Haneda–Beijing routes.
