Boeing delivers Royal Jordanian's first 787 Dreamliner

28 August 2014

Boeing (NYSE: BA) and Royal Jordanian said they have celebrated the delivery of the airline´s first 787 Dreamliner.

The airplane will play a central role in the Amman-based airline´s strategic plan for fleet modernization. Royal Jordanian acquired this airplane through leasing company AerCap.

The 787 is the world´s most technologically advanced airplane with composite materials making up 50 percent of the primary structure by weight, including the fuselage and wing. In addition to bringing big-jet ranges to midsize airplanes, the 787 will provide Royal Jordanian with unrivaled fuel efficiency, using 20 percent less fuel than today´s similarly sized airplanes.

To support Royal Jordanian´s Dreamliners, Boeing is providing a comprehensive suite of support and services through its Commercial Aviation Services business.

Royal Jordanian currently flies a network of over 50 global destinations and plans to deploy the Dreamliner on services to North American destinations as well as to Asia, Europe and the Middle East.
