All Nippon Airways (ANA) has announced its intent to purchase three Boeing 787-10 Dreamliners to add additional flexibility to the airline’s 787 fleet.
In addition, ANA has announced an order for five Boeing 737-800 single-aisle jets to bolster the airline’s growing narrowbody fleet.
The launch customer of the 787, ANA is poised to become Boeing’s newest Boeing 787-10 customer and with 34 787s already in service has taken delivery of more Dreamliners to date than any other customer.
Not including the three 787-10s it is now planned to buy, Tokyo-based ANA is due to receive another 46 787-8s and 787-9s from existing orders.
Boeing values the latest ANA deal, once all commitments are finalized, at approximately $1.4 billion at current list prices.
Star Alliance member ANA will become the first airline in Asia to operate the entire family of Boeing 787 Dreamliner jets.
The 787-10 is the third and longest member of the Boeing 787 family, while the Boeing 737-800 is the best-selling version of the highly successful 737NG family.
To date, the Boeing 737NG family has accumulated firm orders for more than 6,800 aircraft.
