Norwegian To Acquire Four Additional Dreamliners

Has Fourteen Of The Wide-Body Airplanes On Order

Norwegian has signed an agreement to acquire four new Boeing 787-9 Dreamliners. This means that the company has ordered 14 wide-body aircraft in total; three of which are already in service. The 787-9 is larger than the 787-8 that Norwegian currently operates on its long-haul routes.

Norwegian continues to expand its international operations by entering into an agreement with International Lease Finance Corporation (ILFC) to lease four Boeing 787-9 Dreamliners. The new Dreamliners are expected to enter service in 2017 and 2018.

Norwegian currently has three 787-8 Dreamliners in its fleet, with an additional five on order. The company also has two 787-9 Dreamliners on order for delivery in the first quarter of 2016. In total, Norwegian has ordered a fleet of 14 long-haul aircraft, where of four will enter service in 2014; one in 2014; two in 2016; two in 2017 and two in 2018.

“In order to run a competitive long-haul operation, we are dependent on brand new, cost-efficient aircraft. I´m very satisfied to have secured an additional four 787-9 Dreamliners. This is a great airplane with high passenger comfort, long range and low fuel burn,” said Norwegian’s CEO Bjørn Kjos.

The 787-9 Dreamliner accommodates more passengers, is even more fuel efficient and more environmentally friendly than the 787-8. Boeing has performed several successful test flights with this aircraft type, which is scheduled to enter commercial service this year.

Norwegian and ILFC already have an extended partnership as the latter owns several of the aircraft in Norwegian’s fleet, both Boeing 737-800s and 787-8 Dreamliners.
