ANA to Resume A380 Flying Honu Operations

From the 1st of July, ANA will resume operations of its Airbus A380 “Flying Honu” for regular flights between Japan and Hawaii on the Tokyo Narita to Honolulu route as international passenger demand continues its recovery.

ANA will also increase flight frequency on the Tokyo Haneda - Honolulu route from May, and from July 1st together with the Tokyo Narita – Honolulu route, the flight frequency between Tokyo and Hawaii will be further increased to deliver flights on a daily basis.

ANA’s Flying Honu fleet is made up of 3 Airbus A380 aircraft, the first of which entered service in May 2019 and is painted in blue to represent the Hawaiian blue sky. The second Flying Honu is emerald green which is inspired by the crystal clear water of the Hawaiian ocean. Finally, the third Flying Honu features livery in orange inspired by the Hawaiian sunset.
