Boeing has received an order from All Nippon Airways of Japan for three airplanes, worth $945 million, to make its fleet a total of 54 extended range commercial airplanes.
ANA will use the additional 777-300ER airplanes for its expansion and new business opportunities in the Asia-Pacific market, Boeing announced Wednesday.
Shinchiro Ito, ANA Holdings president and CEO, added that the additional planes will allow the company to “capitalize on the expansion of airport slots in the Tokyo area.”
Boeing said ANA is its 787 Dreamliner launch partner and biggest commercial airline customer.
The Boeing 777 is 386-seater twin-engine, long-haul plane and is used by 66 global customers since it was produced in 1993.
