At the end of this month we will welcome another new carrier to YVR: All Nippon Airways (ANA). Doubling the excitement for the arrival of this new carrier is that All Nippon (ANA) will fly a completely new route from YVR, direct to Tokyo Haneda International Airport (HND), which is Tokyo's downtown airport.
Any time we welcome a new carrier we like to take a closer look at the aircraft they will be flying to YVR, in this case, a Boeing 767-300ER.
The 767-300 variant of the Boeing 767 began service in 1986, operated by Japan Airlines. The main difference between the 767-200 and the 767-300 was the length of the fuselage, while the rest of the aircraft remaining largely unchanged. All 104 orders for the 767-300 were filled and more than half remain in service today.
The 300ER (ER stands for extended range) was first flown in 1988 by American Airlines. This variant's extended range was thanks to greater fuel capacity and design improvements that raised the maximum take-off weight. The 767-300ER variant was produced more than all other 767 types combined. A total of 582 orders were filled, and 533 of these planes are still in service throughout the world.
