Boeing delivers first 787 Dreamliner to Saudia
Feb 03, 2016: Boeing delivered two Boeing 787-9 Dreamliners and a 777-300ER (Extended Range) to Saudia, Saudi Arabia's national airline. A third Dreamliner will be delivered to Saudia within the next week. The airline ordered eight 787-9s in 2010.
The airline will now have 48 Boeing airplanes in its fleet that currently include 777-200ERs, 777-300ERs and 747-400s. Over the last 55 years, Saudia has taken delivery of over 130 Boeing airplanes including 707s, 737s, MD-11Fs, DC-9s and MD90s. In December 1999, Boeing delivered three 777s to Saudia.
"The delivery of our first Dreamliners marks yet another exciting chapter in Saudia's long-standing relationship with Boeing that began in the early 1960s," said Saleh bin Nasser al-Jasser, director-general, Saudi Arabian Airlines. "With its reputation for reliability, operational efficiency and comfort, we now look forward to the 787 becoming an integral addition to Saudia's fleet as we continue our fleet modernisation and expansion as part of our transformation plans."
The Boeing 787 Dreamliner is an all-new, super-efficient family of commercial airplanes that brings big-jet ranges and speed to the middle of the market. Since entering service in 2011, the 787 family is flying more than 350 routes and has established more than 75 new nonstop routes around the world.
Many airlines have placed orders for more than 1,000 airplanes, making the 787 Dreamliner the fastest selling twin-aisle airplane in Boeing history.
