Boeing announces new commitments with two airlines for 15 787s

Boeing and two undisclosed airlines have reached agreements to buy a total of 15 787-9s valued at $4.2 billion per current list prices, the company announced at the 2018 Farnborough International Airshow.

One of the airlines would become a new 787 customer. The second airline is adding more 787s to its Dreamliner fleet. Both commitments will be reflected on Boeing’s Orders and Deliveries website once they are finalized.

“This is the Dreamliner effect. New airline customers are drawn to the potential for greater fuel efficiency and range and super passenger amenities, while existing customers have experienced all of these advantages first hand and want to grow their fleet with more 787 Dreamliners,” said Ihssane Mounir, senior vice president of Commercial Sales and Marketing for The Boeing Company. “The strong market preference for the 787 is securing its status as the fastest-selling widebody airplane in history.”
