Very early on Friday 24 July, Air France's tenth Boeing 787-9 landed at Paris-Charles de Gaulle airport to join the airline's long-haul fleet.
The aircraft, registration F-HRBJ, is the tenth and last to join the Air France fleet. The forthcoming deliveries of new-generation aircraft will concern the A350s on the long-haul network followed by the A220s on the short and medium-haul network.
With this new-generation aircraft, Air France is continuing to modernize and renew its fleet with more modern, more efficient and more environmentally-friendly aircraft.
This is a major contribution to the airline's sustainable development strategy. Like the A350s, the Boeing 787 offers operational and environmental benefits with a lower fuel consumption than previous generation aircraft and a significant reduction in CO2 emissions (around 20%) as well as noise emissions.
On board, comfort is optimum, with a bright cabin with windows that are 30% larger than those of previous generation aircraft, more space in the various cabins, better air pressure and humidity levels which make the flight even more comfortable. This aircraft is also equipped with Wi-Fi, allowing customers to stay connected throughout their trip.
