Boeing 787 flights from Singapore to Tokyo by September 2012

Just less than a year after Boeing's new bird, Boeing 787, flew first time over Singapore, Japan Airlines (JAL) will fly this aircraft between Singapore Changi Airport and Tokyo (Narita/Haneda). According to JAL's own website, Tokyo - Singapore B 787 flights will start by September 2012 and there will be more flights added to this route by late October.

JAL took its first Boeing 787 Dreamliner on March 25 this year. By April 22 2012, JAL Boeing 787 will fly this new 787 Dreamliner on a first ever non-stop flight connecting Asia (Tokyo Narita) and Boston. By late April 2012, B 787 Tokyo - Beijing, Tokyo - Delhi and Tokyo - Moscow flights will start. JAL also plans B 787 services to San Diego and Helsinki by December 2012.

The Boeing 787 Dreamliner, a long-range, mid-size wide-body, twin-engine jet airliner, is Boeing'smost fuel-efficient airliner and the world's first major airliner to use composite materials for most of its construction. According to Boeing, the 787 consumes 20% less fuel than the similarly-sized 767. The plane comes very timely since all airliners are currently struggling with rising pressure of high fuels costs.[1]
