ANA Offering Exclusive 787 Maiden Flight Package

Aviation enthusiasts will be offered the opportunity to fly aboard the first commercial flight of the new Boeing 787 Dreamliner, in a special inaugural flight between Tokyo and Hong Kong.

The long-awaited first commercial flight of the aircraft is to occur one month after the first aircraft is delivered to All Nippon Airways (ANA), with delivery due in September. The Narita-Hong Kong maiden flight will be available to any customer who applies for the special package tour departing Tokyo which ANA is arranging, the airline has said.

Welcoming the forthcoming delivery, ANA said: "The Boeing 787 Dreamliner features a host of new technologies providing value to airlines and unparalleled levels of comfort to passengers. The use of composite material and advanced aerodynamics means it is the first mid-size airplane capable of flying long-range routes while cutting fuel consumption for shorter routes. Passengers will also benefit from the larger windows with electro-chromatic shades, bigger onboard luggage storage space and more refreshing atmosphere within the cabin enabled by the plane’s innovative design."

ANA will also operate two domestic excursion flights, departing and landing at Narita and lasting approximately an hour following the flight to Hong Kong to allow more ANA customers to experience the increased level of comfort resulting from the plane’s innovative features, the company announced.
