Following the unveiling of its new colour scheme with an Airbus A380 introduction two weeks back at Hamburg (See BTN 29 September), Etihad has now unveiled the lead Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner, this time of course at Seattle.
The aircraft is painted in the airline’s new ‘Facets of Abu Dhabi’ livery with colours reminiscent of the desert landscape, inspired by the culture, Islamic design and architecture motifs of the United Arab Emirates.
“The US is a strategically important part of our network,” said James Hogan, President and CEO, Etihad Airways. “As we celebrate the rollout of our first 787 today, we remain focused on bringing Etihad Airways’ world-class hospitality and unparalleled product experience to provide more choice to Americans traveling with us worldwide. We are also very proud to support vital US businesses including Boeing as one of the largest airline customers for the Dreamliner, an aircraft that will play a fundamental role in the future of our growing international network.” The aircraft will be introduced into service before the end of the year.
Etihad has announced that the 787-9 will be introduced on six of the airline’s routes: Brisbane, Doha, Düsseldorf, Moscow, Mumbai, Qatar and Washington DC. www.etihad.com
