Israeli airline El Al will be operating Israel’s first Boeing 757 Dreamliner jet this September, which will take passengers as far as North America.

The passenger jet, which can hold up to 282 passengers and travel 8,700 miles (L.A. to Singapore), will be the first of 16 to join El Al’s fleet. According to a press release, the order cost the airline $1.25 billion USD.

The 787’s will gradually replace the older Boeing 747’s and 767’s, starting in August. The new planes will save the airline up to 47% in fuel costs between Tel Aviv and New York.

Apart from increased fuel-efficiency and new electrical flight systems, El Al’s 787’s will provide 32 bed seats, 28 premium seats and 222 economy seats. The space between economy seats will be 31”, the same as in 747’s.

“These planes are in addition to the new 737-900s purchased by the company, which are already operating routes to Europe and are rejuvenating El Al’s fleet”, said El Al chief executive David Maimon.

The first route for the new 787 will be to London later this year. Additional routes to New York and Hong Kong will be available in 2018.

Israel’s Transportation Minister Yisrael Katz at the launch event: “The entry of sixteen of the world’s most advanced Dreamliner airplanes will provide a new experience, position El Al on a par with the best airlines in the world.”
