KLMKLM’s 2nd Boeing 787 Dreamliner named “Carnation” touched down at Schiphol today. The new aircraft arrived in the Netherlands from Seattle.

After the “Sunflower” (Zonnebloem), the “Carnation” (Anjer) is the 2nd of a total of 21 aircraft KLM will be taking into operation. By the end of 2016, the KLM fleet is expected to include 10 Boeing 787 Dreamliners.

All of the Dreamliners will be named individually after flowers: a typical Dutch export product that therefore resonates with KLM perfectly.

According to the planning as of December 14 the “Carnation” will be deployed on the Amsterdam – Abu Dhabi/Bahrain route. Dubai will be added to the Dreamliner destinations starting December 16. Later in the 2015/2016 winter schedule, the Dreamliner will also fly to Rio de Janeiro.
