LAN Airlines Among Select Few to Receive the Boeing 787 -8 Dreamliner

LAN Airlines and its subsidiaries today announced that the company signed an agreement with Boeing to adjust the delivery of 10 Boeing 787-8 Dreamliners to be incorporated into the company's long haul fleet.

This new delivery schedule anticipates the arrival of this aircraft, previously scheduled for 2014, for the first semester of 2011.

LAN will become the first airline in the western hemisphere to receive the Dreamliner, which is expected to revolutionize the airline industry, incorporating the most advanced technology. These 10 aircraft are part of the original order for 26 Boeing 787s placed by LAN in 2007 and previously scheduled for delivery between 2014 and 2019. In addition, LAN has outstanding orders for six leased Dreamliners.

The Boeing 787-8 undertook its first flight in December and is expected to begin commercial operations in 2010. It has the capacity to seat roughly 250 passengers. In addition, Dreamliners are fuel efficient and ecologically friendly, providing a significant reduction in emissions.
