China’s Hainan Airlines has taken delivery of its first 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft featuring ‘Dream Feather’ interiors at Haikou Meilan International Airport.

The ‘Dream Feather’ concept is intended to provide passengers with a ‘better than the expected five-star flight experience’.

The company teamed up with UK-based PriestmanGoode to create the concept. According to the company, the project was completed in under two years.

The concept involved enhancing the airline’s cabin environment, air-to-ground service supplies, service logos and ground premium VIP check-in areas.

“The minimalist feather pattern has been applied in various spaces where the airline’s branding appears.”

In a statement, Hainan Airlines said: “The Dream Feather concept is based on the idea that a feather in a dream is often presented as a feather that is floating in the air or a ‘feather in flight’.

“The minimalist feather pattern has been applied in various spaces where the airline’s branding appears, including on the wallpaper, the curtains, the seat and the floor of the aircraft, creating a unique brand identity that will be easily remembered by passengers.”

The new 787-9 Dreamliner with the Dream Feather design will serve domestic routes from Beijing to Haikou, Sanya, Chengdu, Changsha, Guiyang, Fuzhou, Xiamen and other cities.
