MIAMI — ANA will begin flying scheduled domestic Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner flights on August 7. It will introduce the 395 seat aircraft on routes between Tokyo’s Haneda Airport and Fukuoka, Osaka (Itami) and Matsuyama.

ANA will take delivery of two more 787-9s before the end of the fiscal year ending March 2015, and the carrier plans to start 787-9 international flights around these times. The carrier plans to use these aircraft on long haul routes to Europe, North America, and other key destinations. In the mean time, the aircraft will help with maximizing passenger numbers and lower operations costs on domestic flights.

Although the first aircraft have 395 seats, the aircraft will be converted before international 787-9 flights begin next year. There will be 215 seats which is 46 more than its 787-8s have.

Here is the flight schedule the airline has set:

Flight No. Departure Arrival Flight No. Departure Arrival
NH241 Tokyo (Haneda) 7:25 Fukuoka9:15 NH248 Fukuoka10:05 Tokyo (Haneda) 11:50
NH25 Tokyo (Haneda) 13:00 Osaka(Itami) 14:05 NH30 Osaka(Itami) 15:00 Tokyo (Haneda) 16:15
NH595 Tokyo (Haneda) 17:15 Matsuyama 18:40 NH598 Matsuyama 19:30 Tokyo (Haneda) 21:00

In the press release, ANA says it will become the first airline in the world to operate a scheduled flight with the 787-9. However, Air New Zealand was the launch customer, and via Twitter, it said that it will fly the first scheduled flight. The carrier says it will begin flying the 787-9 between Aukland and Sydney on August 9, but when asked which flight, it said that not all of the details have been worked out.
