All Nippon returns to Brussels after nine-month absence

All Nippon returns to Brussels after nine-month absence

Tokyo Narita was Brussels’ second-thickest Asia route by non-stop seats last year. Its return was an important milestone.

All Nippon returned to Brussels from Tokyo Narita on 17 December after a nine-month absence. 

It was operated by the carrier’s Star Wars-liveried B787-9, which was welcomed back with a water salute.  The crew received Belgian chocolates while all arriving passengers each received a gift.

The return flight departed on 19 December with 182 passengers, the airport told us.

All Nippon began Tokyo Narita – Brussels in 2015 and it exceeded 156,000 two-way seats in 2019.

Tokyo Narita was the Belgian capital’s second-thickest Asia route by non-stop seats, behind Bangkok but ahead of Beijing.

All Nippon’s Barcelona – Narita had an estimated seat factor of 89% last year.  Approximately 68,000, or almost half, of its traffic was P2P.  A further ~36% connected over the airport to Narita or bridged both airports. 

Barcelona – Brussels – Narita was All Nippon’s top route over the EU’s capital airport, booking data obtained via OAG Traffic Analyser.

We recently showed that Barcelona – Tokyo was the Japanese capital’s top unserved route.
