Qantas adds the first Dreamliner to its fleet


Qantas is on the verge of beginning a new era in the aviation industry. The airline has unveiled the first of its game-changing aircraft Boeing Dreamliner.

The 787-9 Dreamliner is the newest addition to the Qantas fleet. It will fly in some new routes and entertain the travellers with ground-breaking comfort features.

The new airplane has more space but a lower passenger count than most of the competitors. It comes with advanced seating in Business, Premium Economy, and Economy classes. The passengers will also enjoy reduced jetlag due to superior air quality, larger windows, less air sickness because of the minimised turbulence effects, and a quieter environment than other planes. The Dreamliner also comes with a greener technology than its competitors, resulting in lower carbon emissions.

The launching ceremony took place at a Boeing factory in Seattle. Alan Joyce, the CEO of Qantas Group, described the occasion as a beginning of the new era for both the airline and its customers.

Mr Joyce was confident that the Dreamliner would change people’s conception of international travel. According to him, they emphasized on every detail to make the aircraft special and different from others. In fact, they are working with several scientists, dieticians, and sleep specialists so that the passengers get the best treatment possible during a flight.
