World renown airline companies, Boeing and Emirates, indicated their commitment to acquire forty 787-10 Dreamliners at the Dubai Airshow in 2017. This purchase, which also includes airplanes and other similar equipment, is estimated to cost $15.1 billion in reference to current list prices.
Emirates, which is known as Boeing’s biggest 777 operator, will be first in line to be presented with the new 777X in 2020. By selecting the 787-10, Emirates is accompanying their 777s with a medium twin-aisle airplane that will provide twenty-five percent better fuel efficiency for each seat, along with better emissions than the aircrafts it will replace.
The orders placed by Emirates for the Dreamliners will start being delivered in 2022, and deliveries will take place going into the 2030s. Chairman and Chief Executive Sheik Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum has stated that some of these aircrafts will replace current fleets so that a youthful and efficient fleet is maintained, and other Dreamliners will support their future growth. Al Maktoum see’s the 787-10 as a good companion to airlines 777 and A380 fleet, and will provide the company with greater flexibility to serve a variety of destinations as they continue to mold their global routes. Emirates’ strategy has been to invest in greatly advanced and efficient aircrafts, and their orders of the 787s has shown just that.
Boeing President and CEO Kevin McAllister is excited that Emirates has chosen to purchase their line of 787-10 Dreamliners as a means of expansion and future development. McAllister views the 787 as the new standard in regards to operation economics in the commercial aviation industry as it enters into service next year. Emirates’ orders of the 787-10 Dreamliner will support the companies long term partnership and will also support many jobs in the United States. According to a formula supported by the US Department of Commerce, this deal would support at least 75,000 direct and indirect jobs.
Out of the Boeing 787 family, the 787-10 is the largest fleet. There is also no other model that has sold faster in twin-aisle airplane history. At least 65 customers have ordered more than 1,275 of the 787-10 Dreamliners to this day, most likely because of the family’s high fuel efficiency and preferred experience of passengers.
