Dreamliner Number 3 Arrives and More on the Way
Air New Zealand plans to add two more Boeing 787-9 Dreamliners to its fleet, taking its total order to 12. The airline already has already taken delivery of three Dreamliner this year and has a further seven on order.
Boeing 787-9s have a list price of US$257 million ($335 million), but airlines typically receive discounts for fleet orders. An Air New Zealand source said last month the airline was also looking to use the 787-9 to open a new route from Auckland to the United States. The two additional aircraft are expected to be delivered in late 2017 and late 2018.
