A daily Boeing 787 Dreamliner service is to be introduced between Tokyo and Sydney by All Nippon Airways.

The service will operate from the Japanese’s capital’s Haneda airport, the hub for 42 of the airline’s domestic routes.

Flights are due to start on December 11, subject to government approval, with tickets going on sale next month.

A 215-seat Dreamliner with a three-class configuration will be used on the route.

The Sydney service will be the fourth new ANA international route this year following the start of direct services to Houston on June 12, as well as Kuala Lumpur from September 1 and Brussels from October 25.

The expansion comes as the carrier aims to increase its international flight revenue by 50% in the next ten years.

ANA president and chief executive, Osamu Shinobe, said: “We are thrilled to be expanding our footprint in Oceania and offering our passengers additional options and convenient connections through Haneda airport.

“Our most comfortable seating and the optimised in-cabin humidity and air pressure of Boeing’s 787-9 Dreamliner should be especially good news for overnight travellers.”
