Tokyo, 10 November 2016: Japan-based All Nippon will launch a new service between Tokyo-Narita and Mexico City starting February 15, 2017. This will mark the first direct service connecting Japan to Mexico.
All flights will be operated using a twin-aisle B787-8 aircraft featuring just 169 seats in two classes – fewer than a typical low-cost carrier’s single-aisle layout. The new route will also become the longest flights in ANA’s network.
“We are proud to be the first airline to operate direct, daily flights between Japan and Mexico to better serve the growing business and leisure demand between our two countries,” said ANA’s CEO & president, Osamu Shinobe. “We hope our flight will also contribute to a closer bilateral relationship, economic prosperity and cultural exchange.”
