During the autumn of 2015, the Group’s first Boeing 787-9 will join the KLM Royal Dutch Airlines fleet. It will offer a 294-seat capacity divided between World Business Class and the Economy Comfort and Economy cabins, together with an innovative in-flight connectivity system.
In autumn 2016, Air France will also take delivery of its first aircraft of this same type. In total, Air France-KLM has ordered 25 Boeing 787-9s for delivery between 2015 and 2023. By replacing the oldest aircraft, this aircraft will enable a substantial reduction in operating costs, and in gas and noise emissions.
