The airline begins the second phase of its long-haul fleet renewal and modernisation plan

Delivering the latest in aviation technology, the aircraft offers a more comfortable flying experience for its passengers with sleek and contemporary interiors. The aircraft also has an exceptional environmental performance with a 20% reduction in fuel consumption and emissions and a 60% reduction in noise.

63 metres long and with a wingspan of 60 metres, the new Boeing 787-9 has a greater passenger and cargo capacity. The aircraft offers 333 seats, 30 of which make up the business class cabin. The modernity, efficiency and advanced technology of the 787-9 is complemented by onboard products and service.

Air Europa’s growing network

Launched in March, the new Dreamliners now operate the existing route to Buenos Aires, part of the airline’s network of 1,062 destinations across 177 countries, including Sky Team Alliance partners.

Examples of the airline’s growing network include the the new Gatwick-Recife route, which was opened in September 2017, and the new Quito service that began in January.

The second phase of this fleet renovation will see fifteen Boeing 787-9s added to the Air Europa long-range fleet.

Air Europa’s UK managing director Colin Stewart commented: “It’s very exciting to see Air Europa commence the second phase of the modernisation plan. The Boeing 787-9 is an excellent aircraft that will promise both leisure and business travellers a sleek and comfortable journey.

“Buenos Aires is a great primary destination for this new aircraft and we are looking forward to offering the benefits of this Dreamliner to more of our flight routes as the renewal plan progresses.”
