Air France welcomes 787

Air France is proud to welcome the latest generation Boeing aircraft Boeing 787-9, also known as the Dreamliner, into its fleet.
The Boeing 787 is the first Boeing aircraft to result from international collaboration. The different parts of the aircraft were manufactured all around the world and 8 French companies participated in the project: Dassault Systems, Safran Electrical & Power, Latécoère, Safran Landing Systems, Michelin, Radiall, Thalès and Zodiac Aerospace.

Innovation to bring you greater comfort

The air pressure on board the Boeing 787 measures at 6,000 ft (approximately 1,800 m), much lower than on other aircraft. The air humidity levels in the cabin are also better controlled, to provide greater comfort on board and reduce the physiological effects of being at altitude.

Greener, cleaner, quieter

Air France endeavors to fulfill its commitment to sustainable development. In this way, the 787 consumes less fuel and emits approximately 20% less CO2 than aircraft from the previous generation. Sound emissions are also 20% lower.

Even more light

With the windows 30% larger than on any other aircraft of its kind, the Boeing 787 allows a panoramic view from the sky! And for even more comfort and tranquility, the lighting system adapts to the different stages of the flight.
