Aeromexico, Mexico’s global airline, have now introduced its very first Boeing 787 Dreamliner into their fleet.

On Wednesday, August 21st Aeromexico presented its first Boeing 787-8 at its new Maintenance Hangar located at the International Mexico City Airport (AICM). This makes Aeromexico the only national airline and one of the first carriers worldwide to serve its customers with the airline industry’s most current and equipped aircraft.

The Boeing 787 Dreamliner showcases unique structural and technological advances. The cabin Aeromexico’s NEW Boeing 787 Dreamlinerlayout features 32 seats with a 180° tilt “Full flat bed” in the Clase Premier Business Class cabin and 211 next generation seats with extra legroom in the Economy Class cabin. The new jet airliner is also equipped with Sky Interiors LED lighting and windows that are considerably larger than other aircraft of its type, with cabin pressurisation to reduce flying fatigue.

This new airplane will also include personal entertainment systems with 16” Elite High Definition Panasonic screens in Clase Premier and Eco Monitor Touch Screens in the Economy Class cabin, featuring over 20 films and 36 television series. It will also include a Moving Maps system providing flight information in real time, the Jukebox application that allows passengers to program their playlists with some of the 1,500 songs featured in the system; iConnect for iPod synchronisation with the entertainment system and the Seat Chat system to communicate with other passengers on the plane, among many other advances.

The Dreamliner is powered by General Electric GEnx-1B engines featuring major advances in building materials, such as their carbon fiber structure and high-efficiency equipment and systems to optimise operational and maintenance costs. All of this translates into significant benefits in environmental terms, with less carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions and lower noise levels at take-off and landing.

Grupo Aeroméxico CEO Andrés Conesa said, “We as Mexicans should be proud of the fact that this is the first time a domestic carrier will operate an airplane many other global carriers do not have,” adding that “The competitive advantages offered by Aeromexico’s Boeing 787 Dreamliner will enhance our customer service”.

“This is truly a landmark day for all of us at Aeromexico and Boeing. We are proud to continue a legacy of partnership that extends to the dawn of the jet age and beyond”, said Van Rex Gallard, vice president Sales, Latin America, Africa and Caribbean for Boeing Commercial Airplanes. “The 787 Dreamliner will bring Aeromexico new levels of efficiency and performance, and improved comfort and convenience for Aeromexico passengers”.

It is important to note that the Aeromexico Boeing 787-8 will be used to serve certain domestic routes within Mexico in October, followed by service on the Mexico City-Tokyo, Japan route on October 14th, 2013.

The second and third B787-8 airplanes Aeroméxico will receive this year, of a total of 19, will be used to operate the routes between Mexico City and New York and Mexico City and Paris as of October and November, respectively.

The delivery and incorporation of the Boeing 787-8 symbolises an exciting time for Grupo Aeroméxico while representing an unprecedented event in the country’s aviation history. This new airplane further consolidates Aeromexico’s position as the airline that reiterates its commitment to providing quality products for all customers and business partners alike.
