Singapore, 14 November 2017 – Emirates, announced at the weekend it has made a USD15.1 billion (AED 55.4 billion) commitment for 40 Boeing 787-10 Dreamliners.

The order signed during the 2017 Dubai Airshow.

Emirates is now evaluating engine options for its Dreamliner order. Aircraft deliveries will begin 2022.

Emirates’ agreement includes conversion rights to switch the aircraft to 787-9s, offering the airline additional flexibility for its future fleet and global network.

The aircraft will be delivered in a mix of two and three-cabin class configurations, potentially seating between 240 and 330 passengers.

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.

Emirates’ partnership with Boeing spans decades. Emirates is by far the largest Boeing 777 operator worldwide with 165 777s in service. The latest announcement, will increase the fleet size to 204 Boeing wide-body aircraft.
