Boeing 787 Dreamliner for EGYPTAIR Flies Sustainable Aviation Fuel

Boeing delivered the fifth 787 Dreamliner for EGYPTAIR via a lease agreement with AerCap. The 787 Dreamliner was designed for superior fuel efficiency and environmental performance. Sustainable aviation fuels have been shown to reduce carbon dioxide emissions by up to 80 percent through its lifecycle. The 5,925 nautical-mile (10,973 kms) trip flight from Seattle to Cairo represents the longest 787 delivery flight using sustainable fuel.

“Boeing and the industry believe sustainable fuel has significant long-term potential to help commercial aviation earn its license to keep growing and meet our climate goals”, said Sheila Remes, vice president of Strategy at Boeing Commercial Airplanes.
