Boeing takes Air India order

Boeing takes Air India order

On the heels of an announcement that Air Canada had placed a $6 billion order with Boeing, the U.S. aircraft manufacturer said Tuesday that Air India had ordered up to 50 medium- and long-range aircraft from the Chicago-based company.

The Air India order includes eight 777-200LRs, fifteen 777-300ERs, and twenty-seven 787s, and is worth nearly $7 billion.

It is seen as another major step in Boeing’s effort to regain its status as the leader in the commercial aerospace industry from its European rival, Airbus.

Additionally, Boeing is expected to announce soon an order of eighteen 787s from Northwest Airlines, previously Airbus’ third-largest customer.

One factor that has been hurting Airbus is that although it is taking orders for its new Airbus A350, it has not settled on a final configuration for the plane, nor has it received formal approval to build it.
