Norwegian signs purchase agreement for two 787-9 Dreamliners
Norwegian has signed an agreement to acquire two new Boeing 787-9 Dreamliners. Both aircraft will be delivered in the first quarter of 2016. The 787-9 is larger than the 787-8 that Norwegian currently operates on its long-haul routes. Norwegian continues to expand its international operations by signing an agreement with MG Aviation to lease two new Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft. Both aircraft are scheduled to be in operation during the first quarter of 2016. Today, Norwegian has three 787-8 Dreamliner aircraft in its long-haul fleet, as well as five more on order. The company will have 10 long-haul aircraft in its fleet; four will be delivered in 2014, one in 2015 and two in 2016.
