It’s been a busy few days for our airline customers are they continue to launch inaugural routes with their 787s.
Over the Labor Day weekend, British Airways launched its 787 long-haul service with a flight from London to Toronto. See the landing here.
Here’s the first 787 for British Airways.
The Dreamliner will fly exclusively between Toronto Pearson and London Heathrow this month. And beginning in October, the 787 will operate between New York and London.
Our customers are also proving that the 787 will open new routes and new markets. In March of next year, British Airways will use a 787 to offer the only direct flights between London and Austin, Texas.
Meanwhile, United Airlines recently asked for approval to start flying the 787 from San Francisco to Chengdu, China—becoming the first U.S. carrier to serve mainland China outside of Beijing and Shanghai.

And shortly after launching 787 service to New York, Norwegian just announced it will launch new 787 routes between Scandinavia and Los Angeles, Oakland and Orlando next spring.
Here’s the first 787 for Norwegian.
We’re excited to see more and more Dreamliners flying all over the world. 84 of our 787s have been delivered to 14 customers as of today—and we’re on track to increase our production rate to 10 a month by the end of this year. Congratulations to all of our customers as they keep the world connected. For a full list of where 787s currently fly as of August— you can check out this website.
