ANA adds Perth and Chennai to its network

Japanese airline All Nippon Airways will launch daily services to Perth in Western Australia and Chennai in India later this year.

The new links follow the launch of ANA’s Haneda-Vienna route on February 17.

The Tokyo Narita-Perth service will start on September 1, with tickets on sale from February 7.

ANA will be the first airline in Japan to serve the route from Narita to Perth, and it will be the airline’s second destination in Oceania.

Flights from Narita to Chennai will start in winter, marking the first direct connection between Japan and the Indian city.

Other developments for this year include the introduction of the A380 – the world’s largest passenger aircraft – on the Narita-Honolulu route from May 24.

The service will start with three round trips per week and will be expanded to 10 round trips per week from July 1, 2019, when ANA introduces its second Airbus A380 aircraft.

ANA will also introduce the Boeing 787-10, the latest model in the Boeing 787 series, to its southeast Asian routes.
