Boeing, Thai Airways Announce Order for 787 Dreamliners

Issue: 2 / 2024

Boeing and Thai Airways announced that the carrier placed an order for 45 787 Dreamliners as the airline looks to modernise and grow its widebody fleet and international network. Thai Airways selected the 787-9 to support its long-term strategy to renew and expand its fleet with more efficient jets, as well as open new routes to support high demand for air travel across Southeast Asia.

Boeing’s 2023 Commercial Market Outlook for Southeast Asia projects that the region’s widebody fleet will see a three-fold increase over 20 years, with growing demand for nearly 800 airplanes including passenger jets such as Boeing’s 787 Dreamliner family and 777X, as well as freighter models.
