“Emirates is the biggest operator of Boeing 777 aircraft, and today’s order cements that position,” said HH Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum, Chairman and Chief Executive, of Emirates Airline and Group. “We’ve been closely involved in the 777 programs since its start-up until this latest generation of 777X aircraft. The 777 has been central to Emirates’ fleet and network strategy of connecting cities on all continents non-stop to Dubai. We are pleased to extend our relationship with Boeing and look forward to the first 777-9 joining our fleet in 2025.”
This mega-deal, witnessed by the emirate’s crown prince, elevates Emirates’ total orders to 295 planes, emphasizing its commitment to Boeing’s 777 series.
“This order is an incredible vote of confidence in Boeing’s highly efficient widebody family and the versatility of our 777X and 787 airplanes to meet Emirates’ needs for global long-haul travel,” said Stan Deal, president and CEO of Boeing Commercial Airplanes. “The 777-9 and 777-8 are the perfect airplanes to support Emirates’ growth, improving environmental performance and unmatched payload capability along the way.”
The order includes GE-9X engines and extends the airline’s operational capabilities until 2035.
Sister airline flyDubai also joins the Boeing frenzy with an order for 30 787-9 jets, marking its first venture into wide-body aircraft.
