Boeing-Turkish: agreement for 30 B-787 airplanes
Order of the Dreamliner program above 1300 orders
Boeing and Turkish Airlines announced they have finalized a firm order for 25 B-787/9 Dreamliner aircraft with options for five more airplanes. The firm order will allow Turkey's flag carrier to further meet the growing demand at its home airport, Istanbul's third one, and improve the flying experience for passengers.
With this firm order –first announced as a commitment last September– the carrier becomes the 71st customer to buy the 787. Together, these customers have now ordered more than 1,300 Dreamliners, "the fastest-selling twin-aisle airplane in Boeing history".
The carrier has continued to expand its fleet of Boeing airplanes. Recently the airline grew its stable of 777 jets with a purchase of three more 777 Freighters.
