Air India to take first Charleston-built 787

128836404.jpg As its second 787 final assembly line springs up from a clearing in North Charleston, South Carolina, Air India is slated to be the recipient of the first Dreamliner built outside of Puget Sound, say program sources.

Structural sections for the first Charleston-built 787, Airplane 56, will arrive at the company's sprawling new final assembly building following its completion in July 2011, followed by handover to the Indian flag carrier in the first quarter of 2012.

Boeing declined to comment on how Air India was selected to be the first 787 delivered from Charleston, while a spokesman for the carrier was unaware of the carrier's selection.

Air India expects to take delivery of its first 787, Airplane 25, which is currently undergoing final assembly at Boeing's Everett factory, in the first quarter 2011.
