ANA strengthens Haneda – China with Guangzhou.

On August 4th, All Nippon Airways [NH/ANA] revealed plans to expand its China network from Tokyo/Haneda [HND/RJTT] with new daily services to Guangzhou [CAN/ZGGG] and Shanghai/Pudong [PVG/ZSPD] along with a second daily flight to Beijing/Capital [PEK/ZBAA] effective October 25th. 214-seat (35 business and 179 economy class) Boeing 767-300ERs will be deployed on the new flights.
