Japan's ANA Plans To Buy Up To 20 More Boeing 787 Dreamliner Aircraft

ANA Holdings Inc. plans to buy up to 20 more Boeing 787 Dreamliner airplanes. The deal includes 11 787-10s, one 787-9 and options for five 787-9s valued at more than $5 billion at list prices, Boeing said.

The Japanese airline group also plans to acquire three new 787-9 airplanes from Atlantis Aviation Corporation.

ANA plans to use the Dreamliner to replace certain domestic 777 models.

The airline's new 787 jets will be powered by GE's GEnx-1B engines. The new engines will contribute to the 25 percent improved fuel efficiency per seat of the 787-10, Boeing said.
