Destination Lima on board our Boeing 787 Dreamliner

Lima, the capital city of the Republic of Peru, is located in the central coastal region of the country and it became Air Europa’s sixth Dreamliner Destination last year, with an inaugural flight from Adolfo Suarez Madrid Barajas Airport to Jorge Chavez International Airport on 23rd June 2017.  Air Europa’s first Boeing 787-8 to land in Lima took off from Madrid at 23:55, arrived in Peru at 05:29 local time and was more than 95% full.

Air Europa’s major fleet update included an order for 22 Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft. Ten have arrived and are already in service, with the remainder being gradually delivered by 2022. The Dreamliner is used on Air Europa’s  long-haul routes from our  Madrid hub and already MiamiBogotá, Santo Domingo, Sao PauloBuenos Aires, Havana and Lima are benefiting from everything the ultra-modern plane has to offer.

Air Europa’s Boeing 787-8 offers 296 seats, 22 of which are in the business class cabin. The aircraft is specially designed for long haul flights and combines the utmost comfort with an exceptional environmental performance. It can reduce flight times by up to 40 minutes, making the journey shorter and more comfortable.

The 787’s technological advantages include a 20 per cent reduction in both fuel consumption and emissions, as well as a 60 per cent reduction in noise. It is manufactured with 50 per cent compound materials, which make it lighter and more resistant and it has windows that are 30 per cent larger than the usual aircraft size and allow brightness to be adjusted, giving a more comfortable flight for our passengers.

In addition, the Dreamliner’s lower cabin pressure (609.6 metres lower than other aircraft) helps the body absorb eight per cent more oxygen, reducing headaches, sickness, tiredness and other jet lag symptoms. In addition, the filter system purifies 100 per cent of the air, which eliminates bacteria and odours and reduces dryness with increased humidity.

Our considerable investment in long-haul travel includes a significant upgrade of our on board services. For instance, our Dreamliner Business class passengers can benefit from fully reclining seats and a tasting menu prepared by the prestigious Michelin star chef Martín Berasategui. Our Boeing 787 Dreamliners also feature the EX3 IFE system, offering passengers a unique on board entertainment experience.  All Air Europa long-haul flights (not just those on the  Dreamliner) feature our on-board WiFi service.
