Boeing announces ANA’s commitment to become 787-10 customer
Seattle, February 2, 2015 (STAT):-Boeing and All Nippon Airways (ANA) announced the airline’s intent to purchase three 787-10 Dreamliners to add additional flexibility to the airline’s 787 fleet. ANA announced an order for five Next-Generation 737-800s to bolster the airline’s growing narrow-body fleet. This agreement will be valued at approximately $1.4 billion at current list prices, and ANA will become the first airline in Asia to operate the entire family of 787 Dreamliners. “This decision demonstrates the strength of our decades-long partnership with ANA, and we are honored by their continued confidence in the 787,” said Ray Conner, president and CEO of Boeing Commercial Airplanes. “We are proud to play an integral role in ANA’s long-term success as they look to feature the complete family of 787 Dreamliners in their future fleet.” ANA, the launch customer of the 787, is poised to become Boeing’s newest 787-10 customer and has taken more 787 deliveries than any other customer at 34, with 46 still on order. ANA plans to leverage the added efficiency and full flexibility the complete family of 787s will allow for its future fleet. In addition, ANA will be able to maintain the innovative passenger experience onboard the Dreamliner that customers have grown accustomed to over the years. The airline will use the new 737-800s to enhance the flexibility of its expanding fleet.
