Japan’s ANA has started to upgrade its short- and medium-haul fleet, with the arrival of its first Airbus A320neo aircraft.
The airline becomes the first in Japan to operate the new fuel-efficient single-aisle jet. ANA has ordered a total of 33 A320neo series aircraft, comprising seven A320neos and 26 larger A321neos. The order, which was placed in 2014, also included three double-decker A380s.
The new A320neo has been equipped with ANA’s international configuration featuring 146 seats – eight in business class and 138 in economy – and in-flight Wi-Fi.
All 33 A320neos and three A380s are scheduled to be delivered by the end of the 2018 financial year.
