All Nippon Airlines will resume regular, nonstop Boeing 777-300ER flights from Tokyo Narita to Seattle-Tacoma International Airport on June 1.
The carrier will reintroduce Boeing 787s to the route starting in September.
ANA had been flying the Tokyo-Seattle route using 787s since October, but took the 787 out of service when the Federal Aviation Administration grounded the planes in January due to battery issues. ANA halted services to Seattle altogether in March.
“We are pleased to announce the resumption of daily services between Seattle and Tokyo beginning in June,” ANA’s president, Osamu Shinobe, said in a statement. “This is an important route for ANA that is expected to grow.” - Jon Ross
