Shanghai’s Juneyao Airlines takes delivery of its first 787-9 Dreamliner jet
Oct 22, 2018: Shanghai-based Juneyao Airlines has received its first new super-efficient 787-9 Dreamliner from Boeing. With the delivery of this new jet, the carrier is looking to expand its international network and increase flights to Southeast Asia, Japan and Korea.
"This delivery is our airline's biggest milestone and marks a big step toward expanding our network in China and beyond," said Wang Junjin, chairman, Juneyao Airlines.
This will be the first widebody commercial jet operated by a privately-held Chinese airline.
The airline, previously an all-Airbus operator, mainly offers flights from Shanghai to more than 50 cities across China.
The 787-9 is part of a family of three airplanes that offer long ranges and unmatched fuel efficiency in the 200 to 350 seat market. The 787-9 can carry 290 passengers and fly up to 7,635 nautical miles (14,140 km), while reducing fuel use and emissions by 20 to 25 percent compared to older airplanes. Passengers will appreciate a more comfortable flight thanks to the Dreamliner's large windows, lower cabin altitude, smooth-ride technology, and other amenities.
"We are confident that the Dreamliner's fuel efficiency, range and passenger-pleasing features will power the next stage of Juneyao Airlines' expansion," said Ihssane Mounir, senior vice president of Commercial Sales & Marketing at The Boeing Company.
"This delivery marks the first of 10 787-9 Dreamliners for Juneyao and their emergence as an international carrier."
To ensure a smooth introduction of the Dreamliner, Juneyao Airlines will use Boeing Global Services' pilot training. The airline will also employ electronic flight bag in the flight deck to improve operational efficiency. On other aircraft, Juneyao uses Boeing's tailored charting services and flight planning solutions.
