BRIEF: Japanese airline takes delivery of its first 787-9 Dreamliner [The Wichita Eagle :: ]

July 29--Japan's All Nippon Airways has taken delivery of its first Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner, which makes it the first airline to operate both the 787-8 and 787-9 variants of the Dreamliner.

The airline will launch 787-9 service on domestic Japanese routes in August.

"The 787 Dreamliner is a key element in our growth strategy and we are proud to be the first airline to fly both models of the 787 family," Osamu Shinobe, ANA president and CEO, said in a statement.

With this delivery, ANA will have 29 787s in its fleet, more than any other operator in the world, Boeing said.

Boeing's 787-9 is a stretched version of its 787-8. The fuselage of the 787-9 is stretched by 20 feet, will carry up to 40 additional passengers and fly an additional 450 nautical miles, the company said.

It uses 20 percent less fuel and has 20 percent fewer emissions than similarly sized planes, Boeing said.

ANA has 29 more 787-9s on order with commitments for 14 more.

Boeing has taken more than 1,000 orders for the 787 from 60 customers.

To date, more than 160 Dreamliners are in operation.
