Boeing announces orders worth $50bn at Dubai Airshow

DUBAI, November 16, 2017

Boeing has announced orders and commitments from customers in the Middle East for 296 airplanes - including 50 options - with a value of about $50 billion at list prices at the Dubai Airshow concluding today (November 16).

Boeing won large commitments across its twin- and single-aisle commercial airplane families, debuted key capabilities including the CST-100 Starliner docking and KC-46 refuelling simulators, and announced services agreements at the 2017 Dubai Airshow.

“This has been a very successful show for Boeing. Our regional customers have maintained their trust in our products and technology, and our partnerships in the Middle East region continue to grow,” said Bernard Dunn, president, Boeing Mena and Turkey.

“We signed agreements with key airline partners including Emirates, flydubai, Azerbaijan Airlines, ALAFCO and Ethiopian Airlines. In addition, Egyptair became a new customer for the 787. Finally, the airshow was a great opportunity to introduce our newest business unit, Boeing Global Services, to the Middle East market and reiterate the region’s importance to Boeing.”

Boeing also celebrated the opening of Emirates Flight Training Academy (EFTA), where Boeing was selected to provide a customized, integrated software system for managing cadet learning and training using software.

Boeing Defence, Space & Security also saw great interest in the CST-100 Starliner docking simulator spacecraft which debut in Dubai for the first time, highlighting the region’s high interest for space travel and exploration. Other defence products on display included the MV-22 Osprey tiltrotor, AH-64 Apache and the CH-47 Chinook helicopters, as well as the F-15 multi-role fighter.

Boeing Global Services group wrapped up their inaugural Airshow with four service agreements. Regionally BGS will provide custom services from the Boeing Global Fleet Care portfolio to Oman Air, as well as a five-year strategic agreement, which will see Boeing provide Royal Jordanian with a comprehensive training solution, including pilot type-rating and recurrent training at its London Gatwick training campus.

Additionally, BGS agreed with Cathay Pacific Airways to support its 747-8 freighter fleet through the Boeing Landing Gear Overhaul and Exchange Programme. Finally, Boeing through its subsidiary Aviall, today announced it has launched its parts sales and distribution agreement with Rolls-Royce in support of their global fleet of AE defence engines. – TradeArabia News Service
