Air India debuts new Boeing 787 Dreamliner in Delhi

You may have seen the Air India 787 Dreamliner at Boeing on our YouTube Channel last September but now it has made it to New Delhi.

After a 14-hour non-stop flight from Seattle, a Boeing 787 Dreamliner in Air India’s colors touched down at Indira Gandhi International Airport in New Delhi today.

“We’re proud to bring the world’s most advanced commercial airplane to India, especially when it proudly displays the colors of national flag carrier Air India,” said Dinesh Keskar, senior vice president of Asia Pacific and India Sales for Boeing Commercial Airplanes.

“This week even more of our airline customers will experience the game-changing technologies and innovations the 787 has to offer.”

The 787 will be on static display in New Delhi before debuting at India Aviation 2012 in Hyderabad on the 14th March. The Dreamliner that will be showcased is outfitted in Air India’s livery and an inviting passenger interior featuring full business and economy-class cabins.

Made from composite materials, the Boeing 787 Dreamliner is the first airplane to provide both long distance capabilities with mid-size capacity. This capability will allow airlines like Air India to profitably operate non-stop routes to many more distant cities, providing choices preferred by the traveling public.

As a result of innovative technologies, the airplane offers unparalleled operating economics, fuel efficiency and passenger comfort. More than 800 787 aircraft are on order by 60 customers, a testament to the airplane’s unique capabilities.
