Singapore Airlines places $14 billion wide-body Boeing order

Staff Writer |
Singapore Airlines announced a provisional order worth $13.8 billion at list prices to buy 39 Boein wide-body planes.

SIA signed a letter of intent with Boeing for 20 777-9s and 19 787-10s to tap additional passenger growth and to modernize its fleet over the next decade. Additional options for the two aircraft types could take the deal to as many as 51 aircraft.

The preliminary order is a boost for Boeing as it seeks to restore momentum for the newest version of its long-haul 777, which after a strong debut has not had a firm order in 20 months.
