Qatar Airways orders 10 777-8Xs, Four 777 Freighters

Qatar Airways announced an order for 10 777-8Xs and four 777 Freighters, valued at $4.8 billion at list prices, on the opening day of Paris Air Show 2015.

“Acquiring technologically-advanced airplanes such as the 777X is integral to our expansion strategy,” said His Excellency Mr. Akbar Al Baker, CEO, Qatar Airways. “With the addition of these 777-8X to the 50 777-9X already on order, we are confident of continuing the tremendous legacy of the 777.

“The order for four 777 Freighters underpins the value that this airplane has also brought to our rapidly growing cargo operations,” said Al Baker. “Qatar Airways Cargo is an integral part of the Qatar Airways Group and we look forward to enhancing the existing fleet with next-generation aircraft.”

“The order for an additional 10 777Xs is a further endorsement by Qatar Airways of the airplane which enjoyed the largest product launch in commercial jetliner history,” said Boeing Commercial Airplanes President and CEO Ray Conner. “We are also very proud that Qatar Airways continues to expand its cargo operations with the 777 Freighter. We look forward to continuing to grow and strengthen our partnership with Qatar Airways well into the future.”
