Dreamliner Touches Down for the First Time in the Region in Dubrovnik

Boeing_787The first ever Boeing 787 Dreamliner to land in Croatia has touched down at Dubrovnik Airport just after 10:00am this morning…

The Thomson Airways flight arrived in Dubrovnik from London, a new service which was launched today that will operate throughout the summer until 22 October. Dubrovnik is a drop off point for passengers on board the Dreamliner, as they will continue their holiday on board the Thomson Celebration cruise ship. Dubrovnik Airport is the first airport in the former Yugoslavia to welcome the Dreamliner.

The Dreamliner, which has a wingspan of 60 metres, has a seating capacity of 282 passengers and is designed to be fuel-efficient.
