It’s only been days since Thomson Airways received its first Boeing 787… and now its China Southern Airlines' turn!

A delivery ceremony was held last week, with China Southern becoming the first Chinese carrier to operate a Dreamliner.

"Today's 787 delivery represents a significant new milestone in the strengthening partnership between Boeing and China," said Ray Conner, president and CEO of Boeing Commercial Airplanes.

"We thank the Chinese government agencies, China Southern and all our Chinese customers, and suppliers for their support and contributions to the success of the Dreamliner programme."

This delivery is the first of 10 Dreamliners for China Southern. The airline will first operate its 787 on domestic flights before introducing the aircraft on long-haul international passenger service.
