Seattle (BOEING) - Boeing is delighted that Singapore Airlines (SIA) has announced its intention to purchase 20 Boeing 787-9 Dreamliners, with first delivery anticipated in 2011. Singapore Airlines has a long-standing and well-deserved reputation as one of the world's outstanding carriers.
In 2004, SIA deferred its decision on regional aircraft. During the new evaluation, begun last year, Boeing clearly demonstrated the 787's value and market acceptance, resulting in this announcement.
Singapore Airlines is one of our most valued customers and long-time partners and we look forward to working closely with Singapore Airlines to finalize the order to support the carrier's unique offerings to the world.
Currently, the Boeing 787 has 26 customers with 363 orders. The SIA announcement is not included in these totals."
