Air Europa Takes Delivery of First Boeing 787 Dreamliner
Boeing, Air Europa and SMBC Aviation Capital yesterday celebrated the delivery of the airlines's first ever Boeing 787 Dreamliner.
Air Europa leased its first 787 through an agreement with SMBC Aviation Capital. The delivery is also the first Dreamliner to SMBC Aviation Capital.
The aircraft will touch down in Madrid today following a nonstop 4,128 miles (6,643 kilometres) delivery flight from Boeing's 787 assembly site in North Charleston, South Carolina.
Air Europa announced an order for 14 787-9 Dreamliners in 2015, the largest ever Boeing widebody order from a Spanish carrier.
The airline now has a combined total of 22 787-8s and 787-9s on order as it continues its transition to an all-Boeing long-haul fleet.
