TUI Travel’s UK airline, Thomson Airways, will be the first in the UK to fly the new state of the art Boeing 787 Dreamliner as part of its fleet in 2013. The Dreamliner will fly from Manchester, East Midlands, Glasgow and Gatwick to Sanford, Florida and Cancun, Mexico.
13 Dreamliners will join the TUI Travel fleet with airlines TUIfly Nordic, Arkefly and Jetairfly also taking delivery of this innovative new aircraft.
What’s so special about the Dreamliner?
- The Dreamliner will not only offer TUI Travel customers a more enjoyable in-flight experience, it will also bring business benefits as a result of its increased fuel efficiency, using up to 20% less fuel than comparable aircraft today.
- Customers will enjoy industry-leading seat pitch in Economy Club seats with 33” or 34” of legroom (more than you get with BA. Virgin, Thomas Cook, bmi and Monarch (BATA 2011)). Premium Club seat pitch of 38” gives customers even more space to relax.
- The Dreamliner will give our customers more room within the cabin – even at its lowest point, there is more than 6 ft of headroom.
- The windows on the Dreamliner are 30% larger than the size of normal aircraft windows – so customers get a great view no matter where they are sitting.
- The cabin pressure is 6000ft instead of 8000ft, which means more oxygen will be absorbed into the blood, so customers will leave the aircraft feeling fresher and less jet lagged.
- State of the art mood lighting mimics dawn and dusk, meaning customers’ bodies are more in tune with the time of day at their destination.
