Boeing deliver to Hainan

Boeing and Hainan Airlines yesterday celebrated the delivery of the carrier’s first 787-9. Hainan now becomes China’s first operator of both the 787-8 and 787-9 variants of the Dreamliner family. Hainan Airlines leased the airplane through Air Lease Corporation. The delivery is also the first 787-9 Dreamliner to ALC, which has 15 additional 787-9s on order.

“We are honored to celebrate this milestone delivery with both ALC and Hainan Airlines,” said Ihssane Mounir, Boeing Commercial Airplanes senior vice president of Northeast Asia Sales. “The 787-9 will complement Hainan Airlines’ existing 787-8 fleet, enabling the airline to open up new nonstop services for continuous global expansion.”
