All Nippon Airways (ANA) will launch a new Tokyo Narita-Chennai route from 27 October.
The thrice weekly flights will be operated by a Boeing 787-8s with 169 seats.

ANA is the first carrier to operate on the route, which is its third destination in India after Mumbai and Delhi.
“It is always exciting to add a new destination, but it is even more significant to be the only carrier offering connecting this growing region with Japan,” says Seiichi Takahashi, ANA’s senior vice-president.
International passenger service is the group’s main revenue source, he adds, and thus hopes to improve its market share.
As previously announced, ANA will also commence Tokyo Narita-Perth flights on 1 September.
The two new routes are part of the Japanese carrier’s strategy to broaden its Asia and Oceania network.
