Beyond Tuesday’s headline-making announcement of 737-Max orders by IAG, Boeing has announced a number of other deals this week. 

Korean Air is to add 30 Boeing 787 Dreamliners to its fleet, with a commitment to purchase 10 787-10s and 10 additional 787-9s. It will also lease 10 787-10s from Air Lease Corporation.

The order will quadruple the Korea flag carrier’s fleet of 787s. 

Turkmenistan Airlines has also added to its fleet with an order for a fourth Boeing 777-200LR. 

“As we continue to innovate our product offering, the 787 Dreamliner family will become the backbone of our long-haul fleet for many years to come,” said Walter Cho, chairman of Korean Air. “In addition to 25% improved fuel efficiency, the stretched 787-10 offers around 15% more space for passengers and cargo than our 787-9s, which will be critical to our long-term business goals.” 

Meanwhile, Amazon is adding 15 more Boeing 737-800 freighters to its network following a deal with GE Capital Aviation Services (GECAS), paving the way to expand its fleet to at least 70 aircraft, including 20 GECAS-provided 737s. 

“These new aircraft create additional capacity for Amazon Air, building on the investment in our Prime Free One-Day program,” said Dave Clark, Senior Vice President of Worldwide Operations at Amazon. “By 2021, Amazon Air will have a portfolio of 70 aircraft flying in our dedicated air network.”

Qatar Airways has also signed up for five new 777 freighters, increasing the number of the type operated by the airline by 20%. 

“This is the order that will propel our Group and I firmly believe will confirm us as the leading cargo operator in the world,” Qatar group CEO Akbar Al Baker said. “Cargo is a very important and profitable division of the Qatar Airways Group and makes a vital contribution to our P&L.”
