Turkish Airlines finalises firm order for 25 Dreamliners

Boeing and Turkish Airlines have firmed up an order for 25 of the aircraft manufacturer’s 787-9 Dreamliners, with options for a further five.
The order was first announced as a commitment last September.
Boeing noted that the twin-aisle B787-9 offers “unmatched” fuel efficiency and range. Turkish Airlines is the 71st customer of the aircraft type.
The flag-carrier also ordered three more B777 Freighters in January, following delivery of its first two of that series last year.
