AIRLINES. On May first, Boeing’s new 787 Dreamliner makes its premier landing at the Gardemoen in Oslo, Norway. In a unique move within the Nordic airline business earlier this year, Norwegian ordered six 787, thus increasing the pressure on its competitor SAS, burdened by debts.

The 787, being extra light, will mean a revolution for long distance flights, says Norwegian CEO Bjørn Kjos to the Dagens Industri newspaper.

“The Dreamliner is an airplane for the future, with high comfort for passengers and low maintenance costs,” Kjos said to the paper.

Boeing has this far secured orders on 851 planes, worth about 150 US dollars, according to Dagens Industri.
