Air Canada has placed an order for 18 Boeing 787-10s to replace older, less efficient widebody aircraft. The carrier will deploy the new fuel-efficient aircraft as part of its broader strategy to reduce carbon emissions and expand its global route network.
Canada largest airline currently operates a fleet of 787 Dreamliners, including eight 787-8 and 30 787-9 jets. The largest model in the family, the 787-10, will begin arriving in late 2025. It can transport up to 336 passengers with a range of 6,330 nautical miles.
Michael Rousseau, President and CEO of Air Canada, said:
Air Canada has made investing in the passenger experience a core priority. Our experience shows customers greatly enjoy flying on the Dreamliner, so we are pleased to offer them a larger version of this popular aircraft, which will premiere a new, state-of-the-art interior cabin design. As importantly, the 787 is highly fuel efficient and will generate operational savings as well as support our sustainability goals of reducing emissions.”
The Dreamliner family of aircraft offers fuel efficiency as well as added passenger comfort. Since debuting in 2011, the 787 family has be used on more than 370 nonstop routes and received more than 1,760 orders from 87 customers (this includes more than 870 repeat orders from 56 repeat customers). Over the last year, the 787 has received more than 295 orders and commitments. Nearly 50% of all airlines flying the 787 Dreamliner will fly more than one variant. Four airlines operate, or will operate, fleets with all three variants (787-8, 787-9, and 787-10).
Anthony’s Take: Boeing’s 787 Dreamliner aircraft offer a great passenger experience and I love that more carriers are bringing these into their fleets. We’ll be flying a Boeing 787-10 on a KLM flight next month and I’m looking forward to the flight.
