TUI Travel firms two 787-8 orders

TUI Travel has completed an order for two Boeing 787-8s at the Dubai Air Show.

The deal, worth $424 million at current list prices, extends TUI Travel’s 787 commitment to 15 aircraft.

The purchase was originally attributed on Boeing’s website to an unidentified customer. TUI took delivery of its first 787-8 Dreamliner in May and now has four of the type in service.

TUI selected the GEnx-1B engine to power the two additional 787s in an order valued at $90 million at current list prices. The deal includes a 12-year OnPointSM solution agreement.

TUI originally ordered the 787 in February 2005. Currently, the Group’s subsidiary Thomson Airways is using the aircraft on routes including Thailand, Caribbean and the Maldives.
