Royal Jordanian welcomed its fifth 787 aircraft, thus completing the assimilation of the first group of its 787 order.
Royal Jordanian’s acting president/CEO Captain Haitham Misto said that the 787s that RJ acquired are a new, advanced generation of the 787. The five new airliners are working on RJ’s medium- and long-range routes, replacing the airline’s four A340s and one A330. Misto added that the airline will resume receiving the rest of the ordered Dreamliners starting with 2016 and throughout the following few years.
Marty Bentrott, vice president for Sales, Middle East, Russia and Central Asia, Boeing Commercial Airplanes said: “We are proud of our relationship with Royal Jordanian and look forward to continuing this partnership well into the future.”
Boeing indicated that it has an order of 1,050 Dreamliners to be delivered to more than 60 global airlines by the end of 2020.
