The Boeing 787 Dreamliner has joined the fleet of Boeing aircraft on display at the Paris Air Show. The new plane will be on display at Le Bourget for the next two days.
“We are making great progress toward finishing certification of the 787 with Rolls-Royce Package A engines,” said Scott Fancher, Vice President & General Manager of the 787 program. “It’s an honour to bring the 787 to the Paris Air Show on behalf of all of the hard working men and women around the world who have designed and built this amazing airplane.”
Tomorrow at 11am (local time), ANA, the Dreamliner’s launch customer, will make a special announcement from the Boeing aircraft display area.
The 787-8 is a twin-aisle aircraft that accommodates 210-250 passengers on routes between 14,200 and 15,200km. More than 800 787s are on order by more than 50 airlines, with ANA expected to take delivery of the first 787 in August or September.
