Farnborough air show to feature Nippon Air ANA 787-9

Nippon Airways has entered an All Nippon Airways´ Boeing 787-9 aircraft in the flying display at the Farnborough air show, the first time a Japanese carrier has made a flight demonstration at the show, the company said.

The carrier said the decision to operate the demonstration flight reflects ANA´s status as the launch customer. The demonstration will be conducted by Boeing with a yet-to-be delivered aircraft.

Flight Fleets Analyzer shows that ANA operates 36 787-8s and 11 -9s. It has firm orders for 33-9s and three -10s. Its 787s are powered by Rolls-Royce Trent 1000 engines. In 2015, a Vietnam Airlines -9 participated in the flying display at the Paris air show. The year before, a Boeing -9 test aircraft appeared in the flying display at Farnborough.
