EVERETT, Wash., Dec. 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Boeing [NYSE: BA] and Jetairfly
today celebrated the delivery of the airline's first 787. The airplane
departed Paine Field in Everett on Tuesday on its delivery flight to Brussels.

"We are very excited about the Jetairfly Dreamliner entering service as the
first and only 787 operated by a Belgian airline," said Elie Bruyninckx, CEO
TUI Belgium. "This aircraft isn't only a perfect match with our innovative and
sustainable philosophy. It is also a great asset in our strategy of offering
unique holiday experiences to our passengers, especially when they fly between
Europe and the Caribbean."

The 787 is scheduled to begin flying short and medium haul Jetairfly routes in
early December and long haul routes between Christmas and the New Year.

"We are very excited that Jetairfly will be flying the 787 Dreamliner," said,
Todd Nelp, vice president of European Sales, Boeing Commercial Airplanes. "The
787 will replace the airline's 767 and offer the best possible flying and
cabin experience."

Passengers traveling on Jetairfly's 787 will experience the passenger-pleasing
features of the Dreamliner such as larger, electronically-dimmable windows and
larger overhead luggage bins. During flight the 787 is pressurized to a lower
cabin altitude, has higher humidity levels, advanced air filtration and
smoother ride technology to make the flying experience more comfortable and
allow passengers to arrive at their destination more refreshed.

The 787 is the most technologically advanced airplane in the sky with
composite materials making up 50 percent of the primary structure, including
the fuselage and wing. This allows the Dreamliner to use 20 percent less fuel
and emit 20 percent fewer CO[2] emissions than similarly sized airplanes.

Jetairfly is part of the TUI Travel PLC, the largest tourism group in the
world.
