Boeing finalises 33-jet order with Air Lease

US airframer Boeing (NYSE: BA) and US commercial aircraft lessor Air Lease Corp said that they have completed an order for 30 787-10 and three 787-9 Dreamliners.

The order, valued at USD 9.4bn at list prices, fulfills the commitment originally announced during the 2013 Paris Air Show in June.

According to Boeing, the new 787-10, launched in June 2013, will extend and complement the Dreamliner family, carrying 300 to 330 passengers up to 7,000 nautical miles (12,964 km), while providing 25% more fuel efficiency than airplanes of its size TODAY and more than 10% better than anything being offered by the competition for the future.

The 787-9 completed its first flight this week and is scheduled for first delivery in mid 2014.

This order for 787-9s and 787-10s adds to the more than 180 Boeing airplanes that ALC already has on order including Next-Generation 737-800s, 737 MAX 8s and 9s, 777-300ERs and 787-9s.

The 787-10, which will deliver in 2018, has 102 orders and commitments from five customers.
