Boeing's 787 Dreamliner arrives at Tokyo's Haneda Airport
Boeing's 787 Dreamliner has landed in Japan for test flights, as All Nippon Airways (ANA) prepares to become the first airline in the world to deploy the new fuel-efficient jet.
A large number of ANA employees, aviation enthusiasts and members of the press gathered to witness the 787's arrival at Tokyo's Haneda Airport.
The twin-engine jet taxied into a hangar through an arch of water sprayed from two airport fire trucks.
Boeing Commercial Airplanes used carbon fibre and other composite materials to build the twin-engine jet. The Dreamliner is lighter and more fuel-efficient when compared with other mid-sized planes.
ANA plans to deploy the 787 across its route network as part of a major expansion strategy. The aircraft's introduction into passenger service has been delayed because of developmental issues.
Holidaymakers may find it useful to have an adequate
travel insurance policy in place ahead of embarking on a journey.
Boeing has received orders for over 800 Dreamliners from more than 50 airlines around the world. The company plans to deliver the first 787 to ANA in August or September this year.
