Boeing 787s First Foreign Destination is Singapore: Air India

Thursday , Posted by AME at 10:21 AM

Delivery of Boeing 787 Dreamliner Likely in December

The ailing national Air India airlines, which has been one of the first customers of the fuel-efficient aircraft, placed orders for 27 of them back in 2006, plans to fly it on the medium-range international routes.

Singapore is likely to be the first foreign destination on which Air India plans to operate two of these Boeing-787s, which it expects to be delivered this calendar year itself, airline sources said.

In addition to Singapore, they said, other routes may be Hong Kong, Dubai, Osaka, Jakarta and Frankfurt.

While the deliveries were earlier scheduled to begin from October this year, after being delayed by over two years, the sources said now the first delivery was only likely in December. The launch customer of the Dreamliners is Japan's All Nippon Airways

The prime reason for this delay is that Air India now wants the aircraft to be fully certified by the Federal Aviation Authority in the US before being delivered to it

To questions on when Air India planned to launch its subsidiary 'Alliance Air' as a full-fledged low-cost carrier, the sources said it could become functional as early as the Winter schedule starting October this year

It would be operationalised as soon as the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) issues the airline operator permit (AOP) to it, the sources said.
