Boeing will bring the 787 Dreamliner to seven more cities on the sixth leg of the Dream Tour later this month and continuing into May.

Stops include cities in the United Kingdom, Norway, Italy and the United States.

“The Dream Tour has provided us with a great platform to show customers, partners, government officials and other stakeholders just what the team has achieved with the 787,” said Larry Loftis, vice president and general manager of the 787 program. “It’s an honor to showcase this airplane as we bring it around the world.”

The airplane will depart from Seattle on April 21. The dates listed below are landing dates for each city or airport. Customers, employees, partners, government officials and other stakeholders will be invited to attend tour events at each location. There are no general public tour opportunities.

More than 44,500 guests from around the world will have toured the airplane at the end of the fifth segment of the tour later this week and the airplane will have logged more than 82,366 nautical miles. The sixth segment will add an estimated 12,750 more guests and an additional 15,500 nmi.
