Boeing Delivers Air Europa’s First Dreamliner
The carrier is the first in Spain to operate the Dreamliner. Air Europa leased the aircraft through an agreement with SMBC Aviation Capital.
The Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner is the second member of the Dreamliner family to be produced. Similar to the 787-8, the stretched version of the jet uses 20% less fuel and produces 20% fewer emissions than similar-sized airplanes. The 787-9 is 20’ (six meters) longer than the 787-8, with greater capacity and a greater range of 8,300 nautical miles (15,372 kilometers). The 787-8 is limited to 7,850 nautical miles (14,500 kilometers).
Air Europa currently has 22 787-8 and 787-9 Dreamliners on order.
