Japan's All Nippon Airways (ANA) has become the first air carrier in Asia to operate the entire Boeing Dreamliner family after it took delivery of the first Boeing 787-10 Dreamliner aircraft, the Boeing Company said Thursday.

Boeing said the latest delivery was the first of three 787-10 airplanes ordered by ANA, the original launch customer of the 787 Dreamliner.

The new 787-10 jet was the 67th Dreamliner to join ANA's fleet of 36 787-8 and 30 787-9 aircraft, the largest Boeing 787 fleet in the world, it said, adding that the five-star Japanese airline is planning to fly the new 787-10 airplane on its popular Tokyo-Singapore route.

"Over the past several years, the Boeing 787 has formed the backbone of our world-class fleet and today we are excited to introduce the latest member of the Dreamliner family, the 787-10," said Shinya Katanozaka, president and CEO of ANA Holdings Inc.

With a total of 330 seats in a standard two-class configuration, the 787-10 aircraft adds about 40 more passenger seats and is 25 percent more fuel efficient per seat than 787-9, Boeing said.

It added that more than 800 Dreamliners are in active service around the world today, which are flying on at least 210 new non-stop routes across the globe.

ANA finalized its order for the three 787-10 Dreamliners in 2015, which were valued at approximately 900 million U.S. dollars at list price.
