Shanghai-based Juneyao Airlines has taken
delivery of its first Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner.
The Dreamliner will also be the first widebody
commercial jet operated by a privately-held Chinese airline.
"This delivery is our airline's biggest
milestone and marks a big step toward expanding our network in
China and beyond," said Wang Junjin, Chairman, Juneyao Airlines.
"As the market-leading widebody model, the 787-9 Dreamliner will
play a key role in our global business growth."
Airlines, previously an all-Airbus operator, mainly offers flights
from Shanghai to more than 50 cities across China. In introducing
the long-range 787 Dreamliner, the carrier is looking to expand
its international network and increase flights to Southeast Asia,
Japan and Korea.
The 787-9 can carry 290 passengers and fly up to
7,635 nautical miles (14,140 km).
"We are delighted to
welcome Juneyao to the growing 787 Dreamliner family. We are
confident that the Dreamliner's fuel efficiency, range and
passenger-pleasing features will power the next stage of Juneyao
Airlines' expansion," said Ihssane Mounir, senior vice president
of Commercial Sales & Marketing at The Boeing Company. "This
delivery marks the first of 10 787-9 Dreamliners for Juneyao and
their emergence as an international carrier."
To ensure a
smooth introduction of the Dreamliner, Juneyao Airlines will use
Boeing Global Services' pilot training. The airline will also
employ electronic flight bag in the flight deck to improve
operational efficiency. On other aircraft, Juneyao uses Boeing's
tailored charting services and flight planning solutions.
