All Nippon Airways (ANA) will be resuming flights using its Airbus A380 “Flying Honu” as it adds more flights to Honolulu, Hawaii this summer.

According to the Tokyo-based airline, ANA will restart flights using the A380 between Tokyo-Narita and Honolulu on July 1. The flights will be operated on a twice-weekly schedule with departures from Narita every Friday and Saturday.

In addition to the return of the A380 to service on passenger flights, ANA will be increasing flights between Tokyo-Haneda and Honolulu which currently use Boeing 787-9 aircraft.

Currently operating on a thrice-weekly schedule, ANA will add an extra flight frequency on the Haneda-Honolulu route bringing the services to four-times weekly (Monday/Friday/Saturday/Sunday) starting May 28. ANA will then add an additional flight frequency on July 1 to bring it to five-times weekly (Monday/Tuesday/Wednesday/Thursday/Sunday).

Based on its planned flight schedule, ANA will operate daily flights from Tokyo's two hubs and Honolulu by July 1.

ANA's Flying Honu fleet is made up of 3 A380 aircraft equipped with 520 seats each.
