Hainan Airlines announced that it will operate Boeing 787 Dreamliners on its route between Manchester and Beijing from 1, May, 2017.
The airline's Boeing 787 Dreamliners are fitted with 36 business-class flatbed seats and 177 economy seats.
It follows the announcement last month that Hainan Airlines is to increase the frequency of its flights at Manchester from four per week to five.
Loic Gao, general manager for Hainan Airlines in Manchester, said: "We are very excited to see our very first Dreamliner landing at Manchester Airport from the 1st of May. Having announced our increased frequency, it makes perfect sense to operate the Manchester route with our flagship aircraft."
