JAL Launches Boeing 787 Dreamliner on Delhi-Tokyo Route

On Monday, Japan Airlines (JAL), the national carrier of Japan flew its Dreamliner Boeing 787 flight to New Delhi from Tokyo on May 1, 2012. The new Dreamliner of the airline is much advanced in terms of competence and fuel consumption contrasting to its existing fleet of Boeing 777.

While elaborating the plans of the airline, the Country Manager of Japan Airlines, Mr. Yasushi Isomura elaborated that the airline has planned to operate five Tokyo-Delhi flights per week and the Dreamliner will be deployed to operate four of these flights from May 1.

Japan Airline’s first Dreamliner flight was launched to the US last week while India has become the second nation where the airline will fly this modern fuel-efficient aircraft.

With the commencement of the Dreamliner, the airline is anticipating to attract a fair share of business and leisure holidaymakers taking inbound and outbound flights to India.  The airline's Delhi-Tokyo service will also lure travellers from other Indian metros, which hold around 10-15% of the total flyer count.
