It’s only been a day since Thomson Airways received its first Boeing 787… and now its China Southern Airlines’ turn!

A delivery ceremony was held yesterday, with China Southern becoming the first Chinese carrier to operate a Dreamliner.

Some have called this the nicest Boeing 787 livery to date… what do you think? Click here to view some amazing images (taken by Flickr user MoonM), which were posted here a few days back.

"Today's 787 delivery represents a significant new milestone in the strengthening partnership between Boeing and China," said Ray Conner, president and CEO of Boeing Commercial Airplanes.

"We thank the Chinese government agencies, China Southern and all our Chinese customers, and suppliers for their support and contributions to the success of the Dreamliner programme."

This delivery is the first of 10 Dreamliners for China Southern. The airline will first operate its 787 on domestic flights before introducing the aircraft on long-haul international passenger service.

China Southern is the tenth customer worldwide to take delivery of the 787 Dreamliner.      

And going back to the Thomson Airways Boeing 787 delivery yesterday, the airline has released a load of images from the delivery ceremony, which you will find on my Facebook page. Click here to visit – and remember to like the page and stay updated on the latest aviation photos, videos and stories.
