All Nippon Airways hosted a celebration for the launch of its new Tokyo-Seattle route at Boeing’s Customer Experience Center Thursday, announcing they will fly Boeing’s 787 Dreamliner daily between Tokyo and Seattle on July 25.
Last December, ANA said that they will start this new route in the second half of its fiscal year 2012. However, they have decided to launch the route ahead of schedule in order to capture passenger demand over the busy summer season.
“According to statistics, about 200 passengers travel daily between Seattle and Japan, and about 1,000 daily between Seattle and Asia.” Yuji Hiroki, ANA senior vice president, said. “Our goal is to bring the best service to all passengers who travel between Tokyo and Seattle.”
Boeing’s 787 Dreamliner provides numerous spacious amenities, including larger windows and real flat seats, so passengers will have a brand-new flying experience.
ANA currently operates eight U.S. daily routes, and Seattle will become the ninth. The airline also plans to launch services from Narita to the West Coast city of San Jose during the 2012 fiscal year
