Beijing :  A Boeing 787 Dreamliner, the first of its kind to be delivered to China, landed at Baiyun International Airport in the south China city of Guangzhou Sunday.

The 228-seat aircraft, operated by China Southern Airlines, will help improve the loading capacity on the company''s international routes as well as the service quality, said Tan Wangeng, president of China Southern Airlines.
