NEWS #PAS15 Aeroflot cancels Boeing 787 order

Aeroflot has cancelled its order for 22 Boeing 787s, the carrier’s deputy general director for strategy and alliances Giorgio Callegari confirms. “We have exercised our option to terminate the contract on the 787,” he told Flightglobal at the Paris air show today. The airline executive says the decision was based on analysis of “capacity at the airport [Sheremetyevo]” and the “sustainability of the fleet development – sustainability in terms of the right mix of widebodies and narrowbodies and network development”.
