BEIJING, May 9, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- On 4th May, an airplane attracted many eyes in the UK. Deer Jet, a global leading business aviation company, is marking the European debut of the world's first 787 "Dream Jet", making a brief stop at London Stansted Airport (Harrods Aviation FBO) before continuing with the series of exhibitions "Dreams Encounter the World" across the globe.
This B787-8 Dream Jet is capable of flying non-stop for 18.5 hours, 16,000 kilometers, equivalent to London to Perth, Australia, non-stop.
The 787's cabin pressure is set to 6,000 feet at the height of 30,000 feet. Tests have proved that between sea level and 6,000 feet people remain perfectly comfortable on board even on an 18-hour journey.
In August 2016, Deer Jet took over the operation of the world's first BBJ 787 VVIP, and made its maiden flight to Hong Kong in September.
Deer Jet is also launching exclusive, bespoke travel packages aboard the 787 Dream Jet starting with the "Hong Kong to Tahiti Dream Journey". It plans to add more itineraries in the future as part of its goal to create seamless travel to fulfill its vision of "Making travel an art", through best-in-class service inspired by Deer Jet's values of "elegance", "performance" and "distinction".
