Hainan Airlines already has 10 787-8s in service and plans to deploy its first 787-9 Dreamliner on a new route from Beijing to Las Vegas beginning in September.
Hainan Airlines leased the airplane through an agreement with Air Lease Corporation (ALC). The delivery is also the first 787-9 Dreamliner to ALC, which has 15 additional 787-9s on order.
"The 787-9 Dreamliner will be a great addition to our long-haul fleet," said Mou Weigang, vice chairman, Hainan Airlines. "The 787-9's super efficiency, capability and in-flight experience will accelerate our market position internationally."
"The 787-9 will complement Hainan Airlines' existing 787-8 fleet, enabling the airline to open up new nonstop services for continuous global expansion," said Ihssane Mounir, Boeing Commercial Airplanes senior vice president of Northeast Asia Sales.
The 787-9 complements and extends the 787 family. With the fuselage stretched by 20 feet (6 metres) over the 787-8, the 787-9 will fly over 40 more passengers an additional 280 nautical miles (520 kilometers) with the same exceptional environmental performance - 20 percent less fuel use and 20 percent fewer emissions than the airplanes it replaces.
