Qantas to store most of its 787s in Californian desert


Qantas is to bring most of it’s Boeing 787 fleet to Victorville, California. The aircraft will be stored there, just like most of the airline’s Airbus A380s.

Qantas primarily uses its Dreamliners on long-haul flights, which are currently not being operated. Only when the travel restrictions have been lifted and demand has returned will there be a market for the aicraft, Qantas said.

Qantas stores its 787s, like its A380s, in a California desert. In Victorville, where the aircraft will be parked, the humidity is a lot lower than at comparable locations in Australia, which is good for aircraft storage. The aircraft can also easily be maintained in California.
