Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner
We're excited to welcome eight high-tech Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft to our fleet, which will be phased in throughout 2018 and 2019. These state-of-the-art planes mean we can offer you even greater passenger comfort, while taking advantage of ever greater fuel efficient technologies.
What it means for you
Our new 787-9 Dreamliners will gradually replace five of our older B747 planes and where you'll really notice the difference is when you step onboard. Building on the aircraft's unique features, with its larger windows, improved cabin pressure and Smoother Ride Technology to help reduce turbulence, our product and service teams are working alongside world-renowned designers and specialists to develop world-leading cabin interiors. Watch this space for more information and updates.
As well as stylish interiors that show off the best of our Australian spirit, our new 787-9 Dreamliners open up new opportunities for destinations around the world. Take a look at our range map that show cities that could be serviced directly by our new Qantas 787-9 Dreamliners.
