13 Sep 2012

(MENAFN) Etihad Airways is holding talks with US planemaker Boeing for future orders, Arabian Business reported.

CEO James Hogan said the company is in talks with Bowing over future plans for new widebody fleet types.

Over the next 15 months, Etihad Airways will take delivery of two B777-200 freighters, five Boeing 777-300ER three-class aircraft, and two Boeing 777-300ER two-class aircraft.

The airline has already received three Boeing 777-300ER passenger aircraft in 2012, including the three-class aircraft type.

In December 2011, Etihad increased its total order book for the Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner to 41 valued at USD9.3 billion.

The USD9.3 billion order will make Etihad the largest operator of the aircraft type in the world. The UAE flag carrier has options and purchase rights for an additional 25 aircraft.
