In a recent announcement, Singapore Airlines (SIA) have signed the letter of intent to purchase 39 Boeing aircraft consisting of 20 B777-9s and 19 B787s.
Over the next decade, Singapore Airlines’ fleet will become further modernised after inking the deal for 39 aircraft on Thursday.
“Singapore Airlines has been a valued Boeing customer for more than 50 years and we are honoured they have selected the 777X and additional 787-10s to expand its future wide-body fleet. They are the most efficient, capable and passenger preferred airplanes in their class,” said Boeing Commercial Airplanes President & CEO Kevin McAllister.
In addition, the order will allow Singapore Airlines to substitute the 787-10 orders for other variants of the 787 family.
“Today’s major order for widebody aircraft enables us to continue operating a modern and fuel-efficient fleet, providing the SIA Group with additional expansion opportunities to ensure that we retain our industry-leading position,” said SIA CEO, Mr Goh Choon Phong.
Singapore Airlines is well known and frequent customer for Boeing with more than 50 current-generation 777 aircraft in service. Subsidiaries SilkAir, Scoot and SIA Cargo are also operators of Boeing aircraft.
