ANA Orders Three Airbus A380s

2016 01 29

ANA has ordered three Airbus A380s worth a combined USD$1.3 billion, reviving the European aircraft builder's ambition to introduce its superjumbo into Japan.

ANA, Japan's biggest carrier, said in a press release that it will take delivery of the first A380 in 2018. The planes will carry tourists between Tokyo and Hawaii and are part of a strategy to expand seat capacity on international routes by half over the next five years, the airline said.

The order comes after ANA won approval from Airbus for a restructuring plan for failed budget carrier Skymark Airlines. Airbus is Skymark's second-biggest creditor.
