Emirates signs for 40 787-10 Dreamliners
Emirates, one of the world’s largest airlines, announced a commitment to purchase 40 787-10 Dreamliners at the 2017 Dubai Airshow. The deal, including airplanes and related equipment, is valued at US$15.1bn at current list prices. Emirates is the world’s largest Boeing 777 operator and will be the first to receive the new 777X in 2020. In selecting the 787-10, Emirates complements their 777 fleet with a medium twin-aisle airplane that offers 25% better fuel efficiency per seat and emissions than the airplanes it replaces.
