Air Europa has commenced phase two of its renovation programme with the introduction of its first 787-9 Dreamliner; confirming its position as having one of the youngest and most efficient fleets in the airline industry.

Delivering the very latest in aviation technology, the aircraft offers a more comfortable flying experience for its passengers with sleek and contemporary interiors. The aircraft also has an exceptional environmental performance with a 20% reduction in both fuel consumption and emissions and a 60% reduction in noise.

63 metres long and with a wingspan of 60 metres, the new Boeing 787-9 has a greater passenger and cargo capacity. The aircraft offers 333 seats, 30 of which make up the business class cabin. The modernity, efficiency and advanced technology of the 787-9 is complemented by excellent onboard products and service. Onboard WIFI, the latest in audio-visual entertainment, and a menu offering healthy and organic meals promise a comfortable and enjoyable journey. Business class passengers can also benefit from fully reclining seats and a tasting menu prepared by the prestigious chef Martín Berasategui.

Launched this month, the new aircraft will operate the existing route to Buenos Aires, together with a second B787-9. The second phase of the renovation will then see fifteen Boeing 787-9s added to the Air Europa long-range fleet.

Air Europa’s UK Managing Director Colin Stewart commented: “It’s very exciting to see Air Europa commence the second phase of the modernisation plan. The Boeing 787-9 is an excellent aircraft that will promise both leisure and business travellers a sleek and comfortable journey. Buenos Aires is a great primary destination for this new aircraft and we are looking forward to offering the benefits of this Dreamliner to more of our flight routes as the renewal plan progresses.”
