Boeing has rolled out the first 787-10 Dreamliner built for Singapore Airlines at its Final Assembly facility in North Charleston, South Carolina. The airplane will be painted in the airline’s livery and begin systems checks, fueling and engine runs. Singapore Airlines is due to take delivery of its first 787-10 in the first half of 2018 and will be operated on medium-haul routes.

Singapore Airlines, the launch customer of the 787-10, has 30 airplanes on firm order. SIA signed a letter of intent in February to purchase 19 additional 787-10s. This aircraft type is a 5.5m stretch of the 787-9 and offers 25% better fuel per seat and emissions than the airplanes it will replace.
