The Boeing 787 or 'Dreamliner' is the worlds first long haul jet to be constructed of mostly composite materials. Combined with a highly efficient engine design and unique flexing wing, this aircraft can operate long distance flights more efficiently than any other aircraft currently in production.
Now the mainstay of the GBAIR fleet - our first aircraft arrived in May 2015. The Dreamliner is more than 30% quieter during take off & landing than any other aircraft in its class and has a lower cabin altitude which significantly improves passenger comfort & reduces the effects of long haul flying.
Featuring an elegant cabin with Business & Economy classes available - all seats have HD personal screens and USB power.
Additional orders for the aircraft saw a total of 40 Dreamliners delivered to GBAIR, making it one of the worlds largest Boeing 787 operators. Deliveries of the Boeing 787 concluded in 2017 replacing GBAIR's Airbus A330 fleet.
