On Wednesday, February 20th, WestJet’s very first Dreamliner took its first commercial flight. “Today’s first revenue flight on the Dreamliner has been years in the making,” said Arved von zur Muehlen, WestJet Chief Commercial Officer. “There are big things in store for tail 901 as it is the first 787 that will take WestJet global.”

This is the first of 10 Boeing Dreamliner 787-9s that will fly with WestJet on its international routes. This plane will continue to fly on domestic routes for crew trainng and regulatory compliance before it takes its first international journey on April 28th, 2019.

WestJet’s Dreamliner was delivered to the airline on February 19th and the third is due sometime in March. The additional aircraft will arrive sometime between 2020 and 2024.
