A Boeing 787 took off last night from Adolfo Suárez Madrid-Barajas Airport and landed this morning for the first time in the Argentinian capital. The airline will also fly with this plane this year to Havana and to Lima
Air Europa has operated since Tuesday the 10th January with a Boeing 787 on its route to Buenos Aires, where today it has touched down for the first time at Ezeiza International Airport with this plane, especially designed for long-distance flights.
The B787, with a capacity of 296 passengers, 22 of whom travelled in business class, took off from Adolfo Suárez Madrid-Barajas Airport at 23:55 and landed in Buenos Aires at 08.35 in the morning.
Buenos Aires, which last year recorded traffic in excess of 200,000 passengers, is the first destination to include the Dreamliner fleet in 2017, although it is also due to operate from Havana and Lima with this plane starting from March, thus consolidating Air Europa’s commitment to assert itself as the most reliable flight alternative between Europe and America.
Currently, the Globalia air division already flies with the Boeing 787, whose environmental performance is exceptional thanks to its technological advances, to Miami, Bogotá and Santo Domingo.
The renewal of the long-distance fleet involves the gradual incorporation of a total of 22 Boeing 787 by 2022: eight 787-8 and fourteen 787-9.
