Japanese airline ANA has announced that Beijing and Frankfurt will be the first international ports of call for its new Boeing 787 Dreamliners. The first Dreamliner is scheduled to be delivered to the airline in late September, with the first regular international operation to be on the route between Tokyo’s Haneda airport and Beijing from December. Then, from January 2012, ANA’s Dreamliners will embark on its first long-haul international route between Haneda and Frankfurt. Flights to the German city will initially run three times a week (Mondays, Thursdays and Saturdays) before increasing to daily from February 2012. This new route will be one of the joint venture operations between ANA and Lufthansa. The Japanese airline will commence domestic Dreamliner services between Haneda and Okayama on 1 November 2011, with its second 787 starting flights on the Haneda-Hiroshima route on the same day. Further domestic services are planned to Itami, Yamaguchi-Ube and Matsuyama.
