The Dutch airline Arke, part of TUI Travel plc, has taken delivery of its first Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner.

 Arke will use the 787 on its service between Amsterdam and the islands of Curacao, Aruba and Bonaire in the Dutch Caribbean.

 The airplane is the first of three Dreamliners to join the carrier's all-Boeing fleet that also includes Next-Generation 737s and 767-300ERs (Extended Range).

 TUI Travel has ordered a total of 15 787-8s, of which six have been delivered and are currently in operation with three of the six airlines it operates; Thomson Airways, Jetairfly and now Arke.

"The 787 Dreamliner is an excellent fit for our Dutch operations and we are delighted to be the first carrier in the Netherlands to offer this product as part of our unique holiday experiences," said Elie Bruyninckx, CEO TUI Netherlands. "Passengers travelling on Arke's 787 will appreciate the airplane's spacious interior, bigger windows and will arrive at their destination felling refreshed, making it the perfect start to any holiday."
