Air Premia has chosen Michelin as the exclusive tire supplier for its entire Boeing 787-9 fleet.
From its base at Seoul Incheon Airport in South Korea, Air Premia will soon start operating regional flights in Asia to Hanoi (Vietnam) and Tokyo (Japan), with plans to fly intercontinental routes in the coming years. By 2024, Air Premia aims to have a fleet of 10 Boeing 787-9 aircraft fitted exclusively with Michelin tires. The Air Premia-operated Boeing 787-9 will be fitted with MICHELIN® AIR X tires featuring patented Near Zero Growth (NZG) technology.
“We are extremely honored that Air Premia has chosen Michelin as its trusted partner to equip its entire Boeing 787-9 fleet. The MICHELIN® AIR X is particularly well suited to new-generation aircraft. It guarantees a very high level of safety in extreme conditions, a large number of landings and major fuel savings, which is helping to make the world more sustainable,” said Wirat Tansuwannond, Sales & Marketing Director for Michelin in Asia Pacific (excluding China)
