Royal Jordanian Airlines orders three additional Boeing 787 Dreamliners

Royal Jordanian Airlines (Amman) has signed an order for three additional Boeing 787-8s at the Farnborough International Air Show. This order previously was attributed to an unidentified customer.

Royal Jordanian has now committed to 11 787-8s. The Middle East carrier placed its first orders for four 787s in 2007 and also has arranged to lease two airplanes each from CIT Aerospace and International Lease Finance Company (ILFC).

Royal Jordanian was the first airline in the Middle East to order the 787 Dreamliner. It will place the 787 on North American routes initially, including New York, Chicago, Detroit and Toronto.
