Boeing, Air India mark airline's 125th delivery

Boeing (NYSE: BA) and Air India have noted the delivery of the airline´s 125th airplane from Boeing, the company said.

The airplane is the 27th 787-8 Dreamliner for the national carrier.

Air India was an original member of the 787 Dreamliner launch group and took delivery of its first 787-8 in 2012. In all, the airline now operates 27 787-8 Dreamliners, along with 777-200LRs (Longer Range), 777-300ER (Extended Range), and 747-400s.

The Air India 787 Dreamliners offer a host of passengers-pleasing features such as large overhead bins, comfortable reclining seats, LED lighting, cleaner air, larger dimmable windows and an exclusive in-flight entertainment experience to passengers.

Air India operates the 787 Dreamliner to all its destinations in Europe and to other cities in the Gulf, Asia and Australia. The non-stop, direct operations of Air India with the state-of-the-art Dreamliner airplane – to both its international and domestic network – have become very popular to passengers in India and abroad.

The airline´s domestic network covers over 72 destinations, including far-flung areas of the North-East, Ladakh, Andaman and Nicobar Islands.
