Air NZ 787-9 to be showcased at Farnborough Airshow


Air New Zealand 787-9 to be showcased at world famous Farnborough Airshow


An Air New Zealand Boeing 787-9 aircraft will participate in the prestigious biennial Farnborough International Airshow in the UK next week.

Air New Zealand is the launch customer for the Dreamliner 787-9 aircraft and has 10 on order, with the first due to be delivered this week. The aircraft that will take part in the Farnborough International Airshow will be the fifth delivered to the airline.

Air New Zealand’s Chief Flight Operations and Safety Officer Captain David Morgan says the 787-9 aircraft will be an integral part of the airline’s future fleet.

“The 787-9 is full of innovative features that are brand new to aviation and will enhance the inflight experience for our customers. The jet also uses 20 percent less fuel than similar aircraft making it an environmentally responsible choice to take us into the future,” says Captain Morgan.

“It’s a great honour to have one of Air New Zealand’s 787-9 aircraft exhibited to hundreds of thousands of aviation enthusiasts at what is one of the industry’s premier events.”

The 787-9 will be on static and flying display at the airshow from 14 July through until 18 July.

Air New Zealand’s first 787-9 will land in Auckland on Friday after a formal handover ceremony at the Boeing factory in Seattle later this week.
