Boeing, ALC finalise order for 30 787-10s and three 787-9s

Boeing and Air Lease Corporation (ALC) announced (18-Sep-2013) they have completed an order for 30 787-10s and three 787-9s. The order, valued at USD9.4 billion at list prices, fulfils the commitment originally announced during the 2013 Paris Air Show in Jun-2013. ALC chairman and CEO Steven Udvar-Házy said the performance characteristics of the 787-10 will "build on the 787 family’s success in the marketplace by providing the ideal size, capabilities and economical operating costs for medium to long-haul markets.” The new 787-10, launched in Jun-2013, will extend and complement the 787 family, carrying 300 to 330 passengers up to 7000nm. The 787-9 completed its first flight this week and is scheduled for first delivery in mid-2014. This order for 787-9s and 787-10s adds to the more than 180 Boeing aircraft that ALC already has on order including 737-800s, 737 MAX 8s and MAX 9s, 777-300ERs and 787-9s. The 787-10, which will deliver in 2018, has 102 orders and commitments from five customers. [more - original PR]
