KLM’s 8th Boeing 787 Dreamliner – named “Lavender” – touched down at Schiphol Airport.
The aircraft bearing registration PH-BHI was welcomed from Seattle last week.
All of KLM’s Boeing 787 Dreamliners are named after flowers or flowering plants such as the Sunflower, Carnation, Bougainvillea, Dahlia, Hibiscus, Mimosa and Jasmine. KLM’s 9th new Dreamliner is expected to arrive in July 2017.
The Boeing 787 Dreamliner is an all-new, super-efficient family of airplanes that brings the speed and range of big jets to the middle of the market. Boeing designed the 787 family with superior efficiency, allowing airlines to open new routes profitably and fly directly where passengers wish in exceptional comfort.
Since entering service in 2011, the 787 has flown more than 109 million passengers on more than 500 routes around the world, including more than 120 new nonstop routes made possible through its efficiency.
