Just announced about 15 minutes ago.
All Nippon Airways (ANA) has ordered 11 787-10s and 4 787-9s with 5 options.
This order will bring ANA’s firm orders for Boeing 787s up to 98 aircraft consisting of:
- 36 787-8s
- 33 (current) 787-9s + 15 firm orders.
- 2 787-10s + 12 firm orders
Total: 71 current 787s, 27 firm orders.
ANA’s 787 order book is now at over 100 aircraft including options.
As a result, this means ANA will once again be the world’s largest operator of the Boeing 787 surpassing American Airlines which expects to receive a total of 89 787s once all have been delivered.
ANA’s new 787s will be powered by the GE’s GEnx-1B engines instead of Rolls Royce which powers ANA’s current 787s.
The 787-10s will replace the aging domestic 777-200s and are expected to be delivered between 2022 and 2024 while the 787-9s will be delivered between 2023 and 2025.
