Japanese ANA Airlines group today decided to acquire up to 20 more 787 Dreamliner airplanes.
The agreement with Boeing includes 11 787-10s, one 787-9 and options for five 787-9s valued at more than $5 billion at list prices.
The airline also plans to acquire three new 787-9 airplanes from Atlantis Aviation Corporation.
Once the agreements are finalized, it will be ANA’s sixth order for the ultra-efficient and passenger-pleasing Dreamliner and bring their overall 787 order book to more than 100 airplanes.
ANA sees the 787-10 as the perfect airplane to replace previous domestic 777 models that are slated for retirement.
ANA’s new 787 jets will be powered by GE’s GEnx-1B engines.
