Beginning November 1, the world’s first commercially operated 787 will fly domestic routes within Japan, from Tokyo’s Haneda Airport to Okayama and Hiroshima.


NH651 Departs Haneda 07:30 – Arrives Okayama 08:50
NH654 Departs Okayama 10:15 – Arrives Haneda 11:30

NH683 Departs Haneda 16:15 – Arrives Hiroshima 17:45
NH686 Departs Hiroshima 19:20 – Arrives Haneda 20:40

The first regular international service will connect Tokyo-Haneda and Beijing in December once a week. In February, the first long-haul 787 flights will fly daily from Tokyo-Haneda to Frankfurt.


NH203 Departs Haneda 01:00 – Arrives Frankfurt 05:25
NH204 Departs Frankfurt 11:15 – Arrives Haneda 06:45 (+1)

ANA will also fly a special charter flight from Narita to Hong Kong and back on October 26-27. Business Class seats will be sold via an auction system, with profits benefitting Conservation International and The Organization for Industrial, Spiritual and Cultural Advancement. A lottery system will determine who gets to sit in Economy Class.

Special excursion flights will also be flown between Narita and Hong Kong on October 28-29, though details for these have not yet been revealed. Time tables and sales information will be published in September on ANA’s website.
