This month, the new Boeing 777X will make its international debut at the Dubai Airshow 2021.
It will be part of a larger display of the manufacturer’s commercial, defense, and services products in the Middle East.
“Boeing is excited to participate fully in the Dubai Airshow, the first major international airshow in almost two years, and to be able to engage directly with customers, partners, suppliers, and other stakeholders from the region and beyond,” said Kuljit Ghata-Aura, president of Boeing Middle East, Turkey, and Africa.
“The show is a perfect opportunity to come together and remind the world of the importance of our industry and discuss technology and innovations that are critical to advance a more sustainable aerospace industry over the long-term.”
A Boeing 777-9 flight test plane will soar in the flying program and appear in a static display during the event.
The 777-9 will be the world’s largest and most efficient twin-engine aircraft, delivering 10% better fuel use, emissions, and operational costs than the competition. It will be based on the best of the industry-leading 777 and 787 families.
The 2021 Boeing ecoDemonstrator, an Alaska Airlines 737-9 that is flight-testing roughly 20 technology to cut fuel use, emissions, and noise while also improving safety, will also be on exhibit.
Meanwhile, Etihad Airways will show off a 787-10 Dreamliner that highlights the airline’s partnership with Boeing to develop sustainable aviation.
Etihad’s program investigates and evaluates new technologies, goods, and processes on its 787 aircraft in order to cut carbon emissions even more.
Flydubai, the region’s largest 737 operators, will also have a 737 MAX 9 on show, which uses 14% less fuel and emits 14% less CO2 than its predecessors.
The Dubai Airshow begins on November 14th and goes for four days.
