Air Canada has recently placed an order for 18 Boeing 787-10 Dreamliner aircraft, in an effort to replace its older wide-body planes. The Canadian airline announced on Monday that the order is with Boeing, and the delivery of the new aircraft is expected to commence in the fourth quarter of 2025.
The main goal of this acquisition is to retire the less efficient wide-body aircraft currently in Air Canada's fleet and replace them with the new Dreamliners. This move is aimed at improving the airline's operational efficiency and ensuring a more sustainable future.
Moreover, the agreement includes options for an additional 12 787-10 aircraft, which provides Air Canada the flexibility to meet future customer demands and secure opportunities for growth.
The Boeing 787-10 is the largest model in the Dreamliner series, boasting a passenger capacity of approximately 330 individuals and a cargo volume of 175 cubic meters. By introducing these new aircraft, Air Canada aims to enhance its services and offer a more comfortable and spacious experience for its passengers.
In addition to the 18 Dreamliners, Air Canada already operates 30 of the 787-9 and eight of the 787-8 versions. Furthermore, the airline has two more 787-9 aircraft scheduled for delivery from a previous order.
This procurement is part of Air Canada's comprehensive fleet renewal program, which also includes the introduction of new Airbus A220 aircraft. Additionally, the airline plans to acquire 28 extra-long range versions of the Airbus A321neo starting in 2025. These initiatives reflect Air Canada's commitment to modernize its fleet and provide exceptional travel experiences to its customers.
