Juneyao Airlines’ sixth 787 delivery is the 100th Dreamliner for China

In China, the 787 Dreamliner love is strong – and now commemorated with Juneyao’s recent delivery of the 100th direct-buy Dreamliner for the country. The 787-9 features a special decal on the nose to mark the milestone. The airplane departed Paine Field in Everett, Washington for the airline’s hub in Shanghai, China.

For Juneyao, the Dreamliner – their sixth, with 4 more to be delivered – means they will be able to service Shanghai, China to Athens, Greece in mid-2020. “We are honored to receive this special airplane,” said Wang Junjin, Chairman of Juneyao Airlines. “The 787 is playing a more and more important role in our fleet, becoming one of our workhorses.”

The first Dreamliner entered China in 2013, and in 6 years has gained popularity among carriers due to its fuel efficiency and passenger experience. The airplane has opened 13 new routes to major hubs in China from all over the world that weren’t possible before it entered service. More than 75 routes are operated by the Dreamliner direct to major hubs in China. By 2038, China’s population and traffic growth will call for a boom in widebody need, and Boeing widebodies like the 777X and Dreamliner are well-positioned to complement that growth.
