Boeing announces new commitments with two airlines for 15 787 Dreamliners

Boeing and two undisclosed airlines have reached agreements to buy a total of 15 787-9 Dreamliners 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 their Dreamliner fleet. Both commitments will be reflected on Boeing’s Orders and Deliveries website once they are finalized.

The new commitments continue Boeing’s sales momentum on the 787 Dreamliner program. With orders announced during the Farnborough Airshow, Boeing has achieved nearly 100 net orders for the 787 this year, along with reaching additional commitments that will be finalized in the coming months. In all, 71 customers have purchased nearly 1,400 airplanes. Half of the customers have returned to place follow-on orders.
