KLM’s seventh Boeing 787 Dreamliner is called “Jasmine”.

Jasmine is a blooming creeper with innumerable white flowers, which give off an intoxicating scent. The plant originates from South Asia. There are numerous species, including the Arabian jasmine and star jasmine.

All of KLM’s Boeing 787 Dreamliners are named after flowers or blooming plants, including the Sunflower, Carnation, Bougainville, Dalia, Hibiscus and Mimosa. KLM’s eighth new Dreamliner is expected to arrive in late September.
