The Dreamliner aircraft is considered the airplane most technologically advanced in the world. This amazing plane landed in the Cancun International Airport (45 mins. from Playa del Carmen) in an exhibition event, even though it is already operating commercially under the airline TUI-Thomson.
TUI-Thomson is the first British airline that is operating with the Dreamliner 787, which is believed to be the most energy efficient plane ever built.
Chris Browne, director of TUI-Thomson said in a special welcome ceremony to the Boeing 787, that the airline has big investment plans to strengthen its presence in the Caribbean region.
“Cancun and the Riviera Maya are very important to TUI-Thomson, we hope that with this new aircraft the 162,000 visitors we bring to this Caribbean zone will increase with the other Dreamliner aircraft we have acquired.”
Last Monday the first inter-continental flights were made by the Dreamliner, from Manchester to Florida and from Glasgow to Cancun, according to information provided by the airline.
