Two airlines said today they’re ordering new long-range jets from Boeing to enhance their fleets.
Together those planes could be worth nearly $2.5 billion at list prices.
Air New Zealand today announced orders for two more Boeing 787 Dreamliners. The airline already has eight of the twin jets on order. The airline didn’t specify which version of the Dreamliner it was ordering.
Air New Zealand’s existing orders are for the larger 787-9 version of the plane. At list prices, those planes cost $227.8 million each though discounts are common.
Meanwhile, an executive of Taiwan’s EVA Air said the company is ordering seven Boeing 777-300ER jets. The list price for each of those planes is about $300 million. EVA already has 15 of the planes in its fleet.
Both of those planes are built in Boeing’s Everett wide-body aircraft plant.
