All Nippon Airways to buy 11 more Boeing 787 Dreamliners
Leading Japanese carrier All Nippon Airways (ANA) recently announced it will purchase 11 more Boeing 787 Dreamliners at an estimated $2.68 billion.
The airline is buying these Dreamliners in the hope that it would help in cutting costs because of these fuel-efficient aircrafts.
The airline disclosed that the sale of All Nippon Airways flights tickets on international routes increased more than 20 percent.
The airline in a statement said that it has 55 Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircrafts on order currently. So far, 13 Dreamliners on the existing order have been delivered to the airline.
The airline further stated that the new order of 11 more Boeing 787 Dreamliners will bring the total number of Dreamliners to the airline’s fleet at 66.
According to All Nippon Airways, the new Boeing 787 Dreamliners are likely to be delivered to the airline between 2018 and 2021.
The airline inducted its first Boeing 787 Dreamliner in its fleet in October last year and is currently operating flights on eight domestic routes, as well as between Tokyo and Frankfurt.
