New Delhi: Quite a few Indian companies are involved in Boeing's 787 Dreamliner project. The Dreamliner is on its maiden visit to India, and landed in the national capital Wednesday.

Dinesh Keskar, president of Boeing India, said that Indian companies are involved in providing various components and services for the Dreamliner project. TAL Manufacturing Solutions Limited is providing the light weight composite floorbeams for the airline, on which the seats are laid.

HCL is providing software solutions while TCS is involved in some of the design work.

"Indian air carriers have recognized the tremendous value the Boeing 787 offers airlines," said Dinesh Keskar.

Air India is one of the early customers and has ordered 27 787s. Jet Airways also has ordered 10 Dreamliners. The 787 offers the potential to enhance the revenues of customers due to its passenger appeal and reduction in maintenance costs and fuel burn.

Air India is scheduled to get its first 787 Dreamliner by end 2011.

"We look forward to the airplane’s introduction into the fleets of our valued customers in India," said Keskar. He also mentioned that the 787's visit was a great day in the long history of Boeing's partnership with India.

The airplane will depart for the Mumbai Airport in the evening of July 15 and will fly back to Seattle on the morning of July 16.

The 787 Dreamliner is built by an international team and will provide airlines around the globe with a new level of efficiency in operations, with a 20 percent reduction in fuel use when compared to similar-sized airplanes. The 787 also brings a new level of passenger comfort to travelers including bigger windows and more personal space as well as an environment designed to help them arrive at their destinations feeling refreshed.
