Dubai International welcomed Air India’s first Boeing 787 Dreamliner to arrive from the South Indian city of Kochi in Kerala with a traditional water salute on February 1, 2017.

Launched in 2009, the 787 Dreamliner is Boeing’s most fuel-efficient airliner, and can seat 242 to 335 passengers in typical three-class seating configurations.

Kochi is Air India’s second Dubai route served with a Dreamliner, after Delhi.


What’s more, Air India is one of seven airlines that connect Dubai to 19 destinations across India – DXB’s top destination country with 11.4 million passengers in 2016.
