Nippon Airways Boeing 787 Dreamliner carbon composite Plane - News

Boeing 787 Dreamliner is 50% lighter and 20% more fuel efficient.

Boeing is making test flights with All Nippon Airways (ANA) for its new light weight carbon composite Boeing 787 Dreamliner, the test flights are taking place in Japan, and will be along the domestic routes within Japan.

The Boeing 787 Dreamliner is to begin commercial flights with All Nippon Airways (ANA) on domestic routes linking Tokyo with Hiroshima and Okayama, possibly from September 2011, and then if all goes to plan, in early 2012 there will be flights using Boeing 787 Dreamliner, to either Europe or to the East Coast of United States.

The Boeing 787 Dreamliner is made of 50% light weight carbon deposits making the plane much lighter than conventional Air planes, this lighter weight should help Boeing 787 Dreamliner’s be about 20% more fuel efficient.

Other noticeable differences the 210 to 250 passengers will see from the Boeing 787 Dreamliner when it begins to fly travellers, is that there are much bigger windows allowing for more light and the cabins will be at a lower air pressure during flights making travellers journeys more pleasant.

There are other Carbon Composite air crafts in the making such as the 8350 Airbus due in 2015.

These new Carbon Composite Air Crafts will hopefully help to reduce the cost of air travel and open the world to more holiday makers. The cost of holiday travel, hotels & hostels accommodation soon adds up so the added fuel efficiency of these Carbon Composite planes should partly be passed onto the person who intends to travel, by reducing the cost of air fares.
