Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd, in a statement today, said the Jordan's flag carrier became the first airline to operate schedule flights with B787 Dreamliner into KLIA.
Its General Manager of Marketing, Mohamed Sallauddin Mat Sah, said Malaysia Airports would like to congratulate Royal Jordanian for this historic moment.
"The brand new aircraft B787 Dreamliner with greater facilities on board will certainly be another add-on value for passengers to fly with them," he said.
The new B787 Dreamliner, which offers 24 business seats and 246 economy seats, is part of Royal Jordanian's efforts to upgrade and modernise its fleet for medium and long-haul routes, replacing the A330s and A340s.
B787 Dreamliner is known for its fuel efficiency and configured with enhanced facilities such as bigger window and overhead bin, low cabin altitude and state-of-the-art entertainment system.
Royal Jordanian Chairman Nasser Lozi said the Dreamliner would help the airlines soar in terms of fleet and services and reducing maintenance cost, particularly after phasing out the currently running long-haul aircraft.
Royal Jordanian has been flying to KLIA since 2012, offering three weekly flights on the Kuala Lumpur-Bangkok-Amman route, utilising A330 aircraft. – Bernama, October 16, 2014.
