Hainan Airlines to operate Dreamliner to Manchester

Posted 18 April 2017 · Add Comment

Hainan Airlines has announced it will now operate the Boeing 787 Dreamliner on its routes between Manchester and Beijing.



From 1 May 2017, the Chinese carrier will use its flagship aircraft on the route. This follows the news last month that they will also increase the frequency of its flights at Manchester from four per week to five.

The airline’s 787’s are fitted with 36 business class flatbed seats and 177 economy seats.  With state of the art technology, passengers will benefit from a quieter cabin and should feel more refreshed thanks to the better cabin pressure on board the aircraft.

Loic Gao, General Manager for Hainan Airlines in Manchester, said: “We are very excited to see our very first Dreamliner landing at Manchester Airport from the 1st of May. Having announced our increased frequency, it makes perfect sense to operate the Manchester route with our flagship aircraft.”

Stephen Turner, Commercial Director for Manchester Airport, said: “It’s great news that Hainan Airlines will be using their flagship aircraft on the Beijing service. Coupled with the news that they will be increasing frequency, it’s  testament to how successful the route has been performing.”

Hainan Airlines’ expanded service will run from 1 June.
