MIAMI — Early this morning, ANA confirmed its intent to purchase three Boeing 787-10 Dreamliners as well as an order for five 737-800 aircraft. Once the orders are finalized, the deal is valued at approximately $1.4 billion at current list prices.
With the addition of the 787-10, ANA will become the first airline in Asia to operate all three variants. Already, ANA–the launch customer of the 787–is currently the largest 787 operator with 34 in service, and it also has 46 more on order.
“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.”
Thanks to operating all three 787 variants, ANA has a lot of flexibility with the aircraft, and with the 787-10 now on order for the airline, Boeing says “the 787-10 will be 25 to 30 percent more efficient than airplanes of its size today and more than 10 percent better than anything offered by the competition for the future.”
