All Nippon Airways has taken delivery of their fiftieth Boeing 787 Dreamliner. During a ceremony held at Boeing’s Everett Delivery Centre, Boeing gave ANA its fiftieth Dreamliner, a 787-9 registered JA882A (c/n 43872).

Osamu Shinobe, President and CEO of All Nippon Airways commented:

The 787 has played a significant role in opening up routes into new markets, while also forming the backbone of our long-haul fleet.  As the launch customer for the Dreamliner family, we are proud to welcome the 50th aircraft into our fleet, where it will continue to serve our passengers with the most innovative and memorable flying experience.

ANA became the 787 launch customer in 2004 when it purchased 50 aircraft and in 2011, seven years later, it was the first airline to take delivery of this revolutionary aircraft.  ANA’s current fleet consists of 36 787-8s and 14 -9s and also having another 33 Dreamliners still on order, including the newest and longest member of the Dreamliner family, the 787-10.
