The Boeing 787 Dreamliner landed for the first time in Norway on May 1, 2012, Oslo being a new destination on the demonstration aircraft’s six-month global Dream Tour.
Over the next three days, guests and media invited by Boeing 787 customer Norwegian Air Shuttle will get a chance to see first-hand the Dream Tour 787 outfitted with the 787’s special cabin features.
These include a welcoming entryway, dramatically larger dimmable widows, bigger overhead baggage bins and dynamic LED lighting.
The 787 (which was formerly the third-flight-test aircraft and is known by the internal Boeing designation ZA003) made the short flight to Oslo Airport Gardermoen from London Heathrow Airport after spending the past week visiting Boeing 787 airline customers and suppliers in the UK.
It will remain at Oslo Airport Gardermoen until May 4 before heading to its next stop in Taranto in Italy.
ZA003 has been refurbished to showcase the standard capabilities and features of the Boeing 787, including an interior that highlights the aircraft’s passenger-preferred features.
