Norwegian; MG Aviation takes delivery of its first 787-9 Dreamliner

Boeing, MG Aviation and Norwegian have celebrated the delivery of the Scandinavian low-cost carrier’s first Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner.

Norwegian leased the airplane through an agreement with MG Aviation. The delivery is also the first Dreamliner to MG Aviation, the aviation leasing arm of Jordache Enterprises which has three additional 787s on order.

“The 787-9 Dreamliner will provide Norwegian with unrivalled operational advantages, large improvements in fuel efficiency and much lower costs,” said Norwegian’s CEO Bjørn Kjos. “In addition, it is an airplane that offers an exceptional in-flight experience.”
Norwegian already operates eight 787-8s and will use its 787-9s to open up new routes across North America, South America and Southeast Asia with its increased range and capacity.

“The Dreamliner is an excellent addition to our leasing portfolio that sets customers like Norwegian apart from the competition,” said Nir Dagan, speaking for MG Aviation. “We are proud to place our 787-9s with Norwegian. We believe this airplane is a perfect fit and will deliver the airline with significant operational benefits and customer value.”
