Thai Airways oders for 45 Boeing 787 Dreamliners......

Thai Airways has placed an order for 45 Boeing 787 Dreamliner jets to grow its international route network and help to modernize its entire fleet.  The carrier, despite a reorganization, is looking to open new routes to support high demand for air travel across Southeast Asia.

"To accomplish our company's and the national carbon neutral goals by 2050, the 45 new Boeing 787 Dreamliners will be equipped with GEnx engines, which are known for their cutting-edge technology and reduced environmental impact," said Chai Eamsiri, Thai Airways CEO. "Furthermore, we are confident that the acquisition of the 787 Dreamliners will ultimately benefit our customers and support the growth of our country's economy."

Thai Airways already benefits from a long relationship with planemaker Boeing and already flies widebody jets including 777s and 787s on a network that features nearly 60 domestic and international destinations. 

Brad McMullen, Boeing senior vice president of Commercial Sales and Marketing said: "Thai Airways' strategic investment in the 787 Dreamliner builds on our long-standing partnership and signifies the airline's commitment to operate a modern, efficient and flexible fleet," said  "This order will support Thai Airways' ability to meet demand, foster tourism and trade, and create further opportunities for this carrier."

This order was actually finalized back in December 2023, and was listed as unidentified on Boeing's Orders & Deliveries website because the planemaker wanted to boost its public profile during the Singapore Airshow.
