Singapore Airlines’ Boeing 787-10 Dreamliner landed for the first time at the Bandaranaike International Airport (BIA) early this morning.

The 787 entered service in October 2011 with the Japanese Carrier All Nippon Airlines.

“The aircraft is going to engage in direct flights between Katunayake Airport and Changi Airport in Singapore from today four days a week,” Aitken Spence Company Managing Director Wasantha Kudaliyanage said.

Aitken Spence is the Sri Lankan agent for Singapore Airlines.

The flights are scheduled on Sunday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday.

The aircraft would be in service between BIA and Changi seven days a week from October. 
The 787-10 Dreamliner is the latest member of the super-efficient 787 family.

Kudaliyanage said that Singapore Airlines, which has been providing continuous service for 53 years, is making a great contribution to improving Sri Lanka's tourism business as well as strengthening Sri Lanka's import and export trade through the use of this latest aircraft. (T.K.G. Kapila)

    Apart from A380 , the Dreamliner is the next best Aircraft ever made. So it is not ordinary, it is something that those who want to travel to Singapore can be happy about.

    This job is extremely easy for us. We have water cannoned enough demonstrations. This time a super Airline from a Super Country. Air Lanka is on the ventilator.
