OSLO-BASED LOW-COST carrier Norwegian has finalised an order for further 19 Boeing 787-9 Dreamliners. The deal, valued at more than $5 billion at list prices, also includes options for a further ten examples and is the largest single order for the stretched -9 variant from a European customer.

Norwegian CEO Bjørn Kjos said: “This order for 19 new Dreamliners is a major milestone and enables us to offer a wide range of new routes to consumers worldwide. After two years of operating low-cost long-haul flights, our load factors have averaged [above 90%], which proves the demand for affordable flights between Europe and the US, and Europe and Asia. Future growth and competiveness in the long-haul market depends on the fuel-efficient, state-of-the-art 787 Dreamliner. Not least, the [aircraft] offers the best passenger experience.”

The 19 new jets will join 11 787-9s which will be acquired through lease deals and, when combined with Norwegian’s existing fleet of eight 787-8s, will expand the carrier’s Dreamliner fleet to almost 40 aircraft.
