Dubai Airshow 2023: flydubai Orders Thirty 787-9s

American aircraft manufacturer Boeing has bagged an order for thirty 787-9 Dreamliners from flydubai. The order, which amounts to USD 11 billion, was announced at the ongoing Dubai Airshow 2023. The latest order from the Dubai-based airline is its first for widebody jets, as it plans to diversify its fleet. The new addition will allow the Dubai-based carrier to fly more people over longer and new routes. The Boeing 787-9 can seat 296 passengers and fly 14,010km (7,565 nautical miles) without a stop.

This is the fourth aircraft order from the carrier since its inception in 2008. flydubai presently has an all-Boeing 737 fleet of 79 jets. The backlog for the single-aisle aircraft currently stands at 137.
