All Nippon Airways Places Order For Boeing 767-300

Wed Apr 04, 2001 10:59 am

SEATTLE, April 2, 2001 - All Nippon Airways (ANA), one of Japan's largest airlines, today announced an order for nine Boeing 767-300ER (extended range) jetliners. The order is valued at more than $1 billion at list prices. The General Electric-powered 767s will be delivered during ANA's 2002 fiscal year, which ends in March 2003.

The order was recently acknowledged on the Boeing orders and deliveries Web site, attributed to an unidentified customer.

All Nippon operates the largest 767 fleet in Asia, numbering 53 airplanes, including 11 767-200s, 34 767-300s and eight 767-300ERs. The carrier has operated the 767 since its first 767-200 delivery in April 1983.

"We are extremely proud of our long relationship with All Nippon Airlines," said Ray Conner, vice president, Sales, Boeing Commercial Airplanes. "The 767 airplane family features the lowest operating cost of any twin aisle airplane, allowing the airline to maximize its profitability and provide versatility in the marketplace."

The 767-300ER is the world's most popular-selling widebody airplane and makes use of new-generation technology to provide maximum efficiency, twin-aisle passenger cabin convenience, excellent fuel efficiency and modern airplane systems, including an advanced all-digital flight deck. Lower-deck volume available for cargo totals 4,030 cubic feet (114.2m3) for the 767-300ER, more than any commercial transport in its class.

The new 767-300ERs purchased by ANA will feature the new, passenger-pleasing cabin interior. The new interior, based on the award-winning interior design of the Boeing 777, uses state-of-the-art lighting and design concepts to amplify the feeling of spaciousness on an airplane already prized for long-range comfort.

The 767's design provides excellent fuel efficiency, operational flexibility, low noise levels and modern airplane systems, including an advanced all-digital flight deck.

In total, All Nippon Airways currently operates 111 Boeing jetliners, including 21 777s and 37 747s.

Today's announcement brings total 767 orders to 906.

Today I took an ANA 767-200 from Nagoya to Sapporo. There were 20 people on the flight, which left at a peak time in the morning. My reaction to this order:

"As if they need it"

It's a good thing that Boeing still believe in its 767 and offers it in a renewed version with 777's interiors.
The 767, in all the versions, especially the-200ER/-300ER has no direct competitor and I think it still has lower buying and operating prices than the A330-200.
Many airlines that operates early 767 examples may replace them with newer ones, especially those airlines that already have or are about to receive 777s in their fleet.
Alitalia is one of them: they have 12 B767-300ER, most of them leased second hand examples and they will soon receive 777s. If they would have to implement and replace the current 767 fleet the best option would be newer 767s, especially -300ER and (if Boeing will do it) -400LR.
If you add that the 767 is 15% built in Italy, well, I must say that I am just happy that it still sells so well.

Ciao

Stefano

According to Boeing there are 620 747-400 orders, so if it's reduced to individual varients of jets, the 747 still wins. There are 612 767-300 orders, and not all of those are for ERs.
