In less than six years of service, the Boeing 787 Dreamliner family has already surpassed 1 million passenger flights, faster than any twin-aisle jet. Connecting the world with over 150 new nonstop routes, the Dreamliner family has flown more than 190 million passengers while saving 18 billion pounds of fuel since its first delivery in September 2011.

El Al finalizes its order for three additional Boeing 787 Dreamliners

Boeing and El Al Israel Airlines on June 21, 2017 finalized an order for three 787 Dreamliners at the 2017 Paris Air Show, firming up additional commitments originally announced in 2015.

Valued at more than $729 million at current list prices, the order includes two 787-8s and one 787-9. EL AL now has six unfilled orders for 787s, with lease agreements in place for a further seven Dreamliners.

 

El Al has been an all-Boeing carrier since taking delivery of its first new Boeing airplane in 1961 and currently operates a fleet of more than 40 airplanes including Next-Generation 737s, 747s, 767s and 777s. The Tel Aviv based carrier is set to take delivery of its first 787-9 later this summer.

AeroMexico (Mexico City) has announced three weekly nonstop flights between Mexico City (MEX) and Amsterdam (AMS) starting on May 29, 2016, making the city its fourth destination in Europe.

This new route will be operated using Boeing 787 aircraft with 243 seat capacity, including 32 seats in Clase Premier, Aeromexico’s Business Class Cabin.

Flight AM 025 will depart on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sunday from MEX at 11:58 pm (2358) and arrive the next day in AMS at 6 pm (1800). The return flight will depart on Mondays, Thursdays and Saturdays from AMS at 10:35 pm (2235) and arrive the next day at 4:10 am (0410).

One of the key factors in establishing this new route is Amsterdam’s status as a major SkyTeam hub where KLM offers a significant number of flights within Europe. Aeromexico is a founding member of the SkyTeam airline alliance.
