Azerbaijan Airlines (AZAL) has announced an order for five more 787-8 Dreamliners and a commitment to purchase two large freighters. The agreement, announced at the 2017 Dubai Air Show, is valued at about $1.9 billion at current list prices.
The airline says the freighter commitment will be finalised at a later time.
The carrier also announced it will be the launch customer for the 787 Landing Gear Exchange Program whereby Boeing Global Services will overhaul the landing gears for its Dreamliner fleet, which will now comprise seven aircraft.
“Ordering additional 787 Dreamliners will greatly expand our airline’s capabilities, allowing us to serve new destinations and carry more passengers,” said AZAL President Jahangir Askerov.”
