Italy plays a key role in the production of the 787, with Boeing supplier Alenia Aermacchi's factories in Grottaglie (Taranto), Foggia and Pomigliano ( Naples) producing the central fuselage and horizontal stabilizer for the Dreamliner.
"We are delighted to count Neos, an all-Boeing carrier, as our first Italian 787 operator," said Todd Nelp, vice president of European Sales, Boeing Commercial Airplanes. "Neos' passengers will get to experience the Dreamliner's revolutionary interior with its bigger windows, modern LED lighting, higher humidity and lower cabin altitude – truly setting the airline apart from its competitors."
Founded in 2001, Neos caters to Italy's leisure market providing flights predominately from Milan, but also other major Italian cities, to destinations across Africa, Asia, the Caribbean and the Mediterranean.
