Royal Jordanian Airlines, the flag carrier of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, announced that it took delivery of its first Boeing 787 Dreamliner on Wednesday.  The airline follows Qatar Airways as the second carrier in the Middle East to operate a Dreamliner.

Royal Jordanian will configure the aircraft with 24 seats in business class and 246 seats in economy class.  The plane will also have LED mood lighting, larger windows and overhead bins, and lower perceived cabin altitude.

The airline plans to use the aircraft on flights to North America, Asia, Europe, and the Middle East.

The Boeing 787 Dreamliner is one of the world’s most advanced airplanes.  Fifty percent of its primary structure is comprised of composite materials, including the fuselage and wings, and it uses 20% less fuel than older similarly-sized planes.

Royal Jordanian Airlines was founded in 1963 and is headquartered in Amman, Jordan.  The carrier is a member of the Oneworld alliance, and currently operates over 500 flights a week.
