Carrier Releases ‘Making Of Its New Boeing 787 Dreamliner Video’ Just Days Before Taking Deliver


 

Qatar Airways has unveiled a new video showing the making of its first Boeing 787 Dreamliner just days before the aircraft’s scheduled delivery to the Doha-based airline. 

The dramatic three-minute footage shows the aircraft being assembled and painted at Boeing’s 787 production line in Seattle before being rolled out for test flights. 

The video can be viewed on the airline’s Facebook site, facebook.com/qatarairways and is also posted on You Tube. 

Qatar Airways is the Middle East launch customer of the 787 with 60 aircraft on order. The first is due to be delivered this week making its maiden journey from Seattle to Doha, capital of the State of Qatar. 

Chief Executive Officer Akbar Al Baker said that aside from aviation enthusiasts, the video would appeal to people of different ages and interests. 

“This is a fascinating insight into the world of aviation and promises to be an eye opener for many people as they see the assembly of our first Boeing 787, the world’s most advanced passenger aircraft,” he said. 

“Special cameras and technology have been used to film the video over many months as our aircraft is assembled in Seattle, painted and rolled out of Boeing’s production line. This is an historic week as we officially take delivery of our first 787 and prepare to fly it home to Doha for what truly will be a moment of pride and joy for all those associated with the newest aircraft to join our fleet.” 

The 787 Dreamliner is made up of composite materials making it a lighter and more fuel efficient than any comparable aircraft of its size and range. Key features include larger windows, lower cabin pressure at higher altitude ensuring less fatigue, mood lighting throughout the aircraft and more passenger space and comfort. 

Qatar Airways has 254 custom-made seats across its Business and Economy Class cabins with specially designed interiors, together with a unique inflight entertainment system offering over 1,000 audio and video programming options. Its Dreamliners are also the world’s first fully connected 787s with wireless facilities for passengers to remain in touch with their friends and loved ones on the ground. 

One of the world’s fastest growing airlines, Qatar Airways has seen rapid growth in just 15 years of operations, currently flying a modern fleet of 111 aircraft to 120 key business and leisure destinations across Europe, Middle East, Africa, Asia Pacific, North America and South America. 

Since the beginning of 2012, Qatar Airways has launched flights to 10 new destinations – Baku (Azerbaijan); Tbilisi (Georgia); Kigali (Rwanda); Zagreb (Croatia), Erbil (Iraq), Baghdad (Iraq), Perth (Australia), Kilimanjaro (Tanzania); Yangon (Myanmar) and Maputo (Mozambique). 

Over the next few months, Qatar Airways will launch services to a diverse portfolio of new routes, including Belgrade, Serbia (November 20); Warsaw, Poland (December 5), Gassim, Saudi Arabia (7 January 2013); Najaf, Iraq (January 23); Phnom Penh, Cambodia (February 20); Chicago, USA (April 10); and Salalah, Oman (May 22).
