Boeing and Aeromexico finalise order for six 787s

28-Dec-2012 1:01 PM

Aeromexico and Boeing finalised (27-Dec-2012) an order for six 787s, with reconfirmation rights for four additional 787s. The firm order by Mexico's largest airline, which was first announced as a commitment in Jul-2012, is valued at more than USD1.2 billion at published list prices. "The acquisitions of these Boeing 787-9 Dreamliners, that are part of the set of 100 aircrafts announced previous this year, represent a fundamental step that strengthens the international position and leadership of Grupo Aeromexico," said Aeromexico CEO Andres Conesa, adding: "With this successful purchase, Grupo Aeromexico will have a total of 19 Boeing 787 Dreamliners in its fleet, whose first delivery is expected to be in the summer of 2013. The arrival of these aircrafts will surely increase the added value of our assets and will also reinforce our operative structure, giving us the flexibility to continue growing." Aeromexico operates an all-Boeing fleet for aircraft larger than 100 seats. [more - original PR]
