ANA Holdings announced it will place firm orders for 70 new aircraft worth Y1.7T at list prices with Boeing (BA) and Airbus (EADSY). The order is the biggest in the airline’s history, the company said.
The aircraft will be delivered during period of FY2016-2027 and will increase the size of the ANA fleet to 250 aircraft.
ANA HD has decided to purchase twenty Boeing 777-9X, six further Boeing 777-300ER aircraft to support the expansion of its international services until delivery of Boeing 777-9X, and fourteen additional medium-sized Boeing 787-9 aircraft.
The order with Airbus consists of 30 smaller single-aisle jets from the A320 family – seven A320neo aircraft and twenty-three A321neo aircraft, which will replace ANA’s existing B737-500 and A320ceo aircraft.
