Four and 45 Dreamliners for Southeast Asian carriers

In Singapore, where one of the world’s biggest air shows is taking place this week, Boeing has announced the purchase of 49 B787 Dreamliners by two companies based in Southeast Asia.


Royal Brunei Airlines, which was the region's first carrier to fly the B787 over a decade ago, signed for four B787-9 to renew its widebody fleet. CEO Sabirin bin Haji Abdul Hamid: "Royal Brunei Airlines has been operating the 787-8 for the last ten years and this order will ensure we continue with a product that our customers have come to enjoy."


Already finalised in December 2023 but made public only now, Thai Airways placed an order for 45 B787-9 to support its long-term strategy to renew and expand its fleet with more efficient jets, as well as open new routes to support demand for air transport in Southeast Asia. (ah)
