Boeing (Chicago and Seattle) and CIT Group Inc., a global leader in transportation finance, announced today that CIT Aerospace has placed an order for 10 787-9 Dreamliners, valued at $2.5 billion at current list prices. This brings the leasing company’s total 787 orders to 20, including 16 787-9s.
The Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner is the second member of the super-efficient 787 family and celebrated its first customer delivery in June.

At 20 feet (6 meters) longer than the 787-8, the 787-9 extends the family in capacity and range, flying more passengers and more cargo farther.
