Ethiopian Airlines, Boeing Announce Order for Four 777 Freighters

Emirates

Ethiopian Airlines announced an order for four Boeing 777 freighters in a deal valued at more than $1.3 billion at list prices.

However, the order for the jets whose production helps support thousands of jobs at Airbus's United Kingdom plants has so failed to materialise.

The order signed during the 2017 Dubai Airshow. However, there are huge doubts whether airlines who have ordered A380s will actually buy them.

Azerbaijan Airlines also announced it will be the launch customer for the 787 Landing Gear Exchange Program whereby Boeing Global Services will provide the carrier with a lower-cost solution for overhauled and certified landing gears for its Dreamliner fleet, which now grows to seven airplanes.

"Orders made by Emirates will be brought in starting from 2022, and the products are sure to last the company for more than a decade". "Some of these will be replacements so that we maintain a young and efficient fleet, and others will power our future network growth".

The order comes on top of Emirates' historic purchase of 150 Boeing 777X aircraft equipped with GE9X engines at the 2013 Dubai Air Show, also to be delivered from 2020 onwards. "We see the 787 as a great complement to our 777 and A380 fleet, providing us with more flexibility to serve a range of destinations as we develop our global route network". They will be delivered starting from 2022 in phases.

"We appreciate Azerbaijan Airlines' growing confidence in the Boeing 787 and the airplane's market-leading fuel efficiency and passenger-pleasing features", said Kevin McAllister, president and CEO of Boeing Commercial Airplanes.

"This is an airplane that will set a new benchmark for operating economics in the commercial aviation industry when it enters service next year".
