CBI member Boeing and Air China announced an order for six additional 777-300ER (Extended Range) jetliners.
The order is valued at more than US$2 billion at current list prices and bolsters Air China’s long-haul wide-body fleet as it looks to expand its international network. China’s flag carrier continues to modernise its long-haul fleet to replace aging aircraft and plans to expand its growing network internationally.
Air China currently operates a fleet of 174 Boeing airplanes, including nearly all current Boeing production models, including the Next-Generation 737, 747-8 Intercontinental as well as 777-300ERs.
With this new order, Air China will increase its unfilled airplane orders with Boeing to 90 units, which include orders for new 787-9 Dreamliners.
