Aeromexico Finalizes Dreamliner Order

Will Acquire Six 787s, Plus Reconfirmation Rights For Four Additional Airplanes

An order for six 787-9 Dreamliners, with reconfirmation rights for four additional Dreamliners, has been finalized by Boeing and Aeromexico. The order by Mexico's largest airline, which was first announced as a commitment in July, is valued at more than $1.46 billion at published list prices.

"The acquisition of these Boeing 787-9 Dreamliners, part of the 100 aircraft announced earlier this year, represents a fundamental step that strengthens the international position and leadership of Grupo Aeromexico," said Andres Conesa, Aeromexico's CEO. "It also reaffirms the company's commitment to provide the best service to our clients, assuring they will be treated with the best crew and will fly with the best aircraft ever built."

"With this successful purchase, Grupo Aeromexico will have a total of 19 Boeing 787 Dreamliners in its fleet, whose first delivery is expected to be in the summer of 2013. The arrival of these aircraft will surely increase the added value of our assets and will also reinforce our operative structure, giving us the flexibility to continue growing," said Conesa.

"Aeromexico continues to show it is an aviation leader in Latin America and across the globe," said Van Rex Gallard, vice president of Sales for Latin America, Africa, & Caribbean, Boeing Commercial Airplanes. "These additional 787s will help Mexico's largest airline expand its international presence with a stellar product for its valued customers. The Dreamliner will allow Aeromexico to provide the highest level of service to its passengers, while taking advantage of the airplane's unmatched economics."

Aeromexico operates an all-Boeing fleet of airplanes larger than 100 seats.
