"Water Gate" Welcoming Ceremony for the 787 Dreamliner, Green Technology Improves the Onboard ExperienceAt 11 a.m., the long-awaited 787 Dreamliner aircraft appeared as a great majestic bird in the distance, grabbing the attention of all present. The golden yellow silhouette of the craft glistened against the azure blue of the sky moments before passing through the "water gate," washing off the dust accumulated during 13 hours of flight. At last, the plane glided to a smooth stop on the spacious parking apron.

Captain Theodore V. Shropshire of Boeing said at the ceremony, "We are excited to witness the maiden flight of Hainan's first 787 Dreamliner. Boeing remains committed to providing efficient and safe aircraft and technical support for Hainan Airlines. We look forward to more planes from Boeing joining Hainan Airlines' fleet."

Boeing 787, one of the world's most technologically advanced and forward thinking civil aircraft, is highly regarded for its excellent performance, innovative design and low-carbon footprint. The aircraft uses composite materials to increase efficiency and reduce fuel consumption. It features cleaner, healthier air due to a new gaseous filtration system that removes odors and irritants, lower cabin altitude, 30% larger windows with an electrochromic dimming system that allows passengers to change the tint of the window from fully transparent to completely dimmed, as well as larger overhead bins compared to similar-sized airplanes, providing a whole new passenger experience.
