Avianca took delivery of a 787-8 this week — marking the 500th 787 Dreamliner to be delivered to a customer, according to a news release. The Dreamliners, which are built in North Charleston and Everett, Wash., entered service in 2011. The 787 Dreamliner fleet has since grown to include 48 operators. The 787 family is now flying more than 530 routes, with customers opening more than 120 new nonstop routes.
