Belgian carrier Jetairfly received its first Boeing
787 Dreamliner Tuesday, Dec. 3 at Paine Field in Everett, Wash.
The aircraft is scheduled to enter service on short and medium haul routes by the end of the year, according to Boeing. Jetairfly will use the 787 to replace its existing in-service 767.
"We are very excited about the Jetairfly Dreamliner entering service as the first and only 787 operated by a Belgian airline," said Elie Bruyninckx, CEO TUI Belgium. "This aircraft isn't only a perfect match with our innovative and sustainable philosophy. It is also a great asset in our strategy of offering unique holiday experiences to our passengers, especially when they fly between Europe and the Caribbean."
The new 787 departed for its delivery flight to Brussels on Tuesday.
