- All Nippon Airways has taken advantage of the additional slots it was awarded at Tokyo Haneda (HND) to launch seven new international routes, all of which will be served daily. Three of the new routes are to Europe, three to Asia and one (Vancouver) in North America. Four of the routes are already served by other carriers. Two of the routes will be served by the airline’s 787-8s with two others (Hanoi and Manila) migrating to that aircraft type during the summer. In addition ANA has also started a daily direct service from Tokyo Narita (NRT) to Düsseldorf (DUS).
