KLM welcomes tenth Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner ‘Marguerite’

August 25, 2017 Aviation No Comments Email Email

Today, KLM Royal Dutch Airlines welcomed its tenth Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner at Schiphol Airport. The aircraft landed at 8.00 AM coming from Seattle in the US. The aircraft will bear the name Margriet – Dutch for Marguerite. 

KLM’s Dreamliners are named for flowers or flowering plants, a typical Dutch export product, which suits KLM well. Other B787s have received names such as Zonnebloem (Sunflower), Anjer (Carnation), Dahlia, and Lavendel(Lavender). The ninth Dreamliner, delivered in July, bears the name Lelie (Lily).

More comfortable and eco-friendly

The Boeing 787 creates less noise, consumes les fuel, and gives off fewer carbon dioxide emissions. It brings us ever closer to our aim to reduce CO2 emissions by 20% in 2020 compared to 2011. The Dreamliner is built mainly of carbon fibre composite which can be cut easily, so the manufacturing process creates less waste.

The aircraft also offers numerous advantages in terms of passenger comfort. The increased cabin air pressure helps passengers to arrive at their destination feeling well rested. Passengers who want to be online during their flight have access to WiFi.

Next Dreamliner expected in January 2018

KLM took receipt of its first Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner in November of 2015. In January 2018, we are expecting our eleventh Dreamliner.
