Etihad Airways to Operate Boeing 787 Dreamliner on Tokyo Narita Route

Etihad Airways is to upgrade the aircraft it uses on the Abu Dhabi - Tokyo Narita route to Boeing 787-Dreamliner from 1 December 2016.

The state-of-the-art aircraft, configured in three classes, features the airline’s new First Suites, Business Studios and Economy Smart Seats and will replace the Airbus A340 which currently operates the non-stop service.

Kevin Knight, Etihad Aviation Group Chief Strategy and Planning Officer, said, “The B787 Dreamliner is an exceptional aircraft from an operational and guest experience perspective. Its unique design and our innovative and stylish cabins offer a guest experience that’s superior in terms of luxury and comfort. These product attributes and the Etihad inflight service and hospitality – onboard Chefs, Food & Beverage Managers and Flying Nannies – make ours a winning proposition.”

Etihad Airways’ three-class B787 Dreamliner has 235 seats with eight First Suites, 28 Business Studios and 199 Economy Smart Seats.

Etihad Airways commenced service to Japan on 1 February 2010 with five weekly flights between Abu Dhabi and Nagoya, via Beijing. This increased to daily on 30 March 2014.

 Tokyo Narita was added to the Japan route on 27 March 2010 with five weekly non-stop flights, going daily on 31 March 2013.
