EVA Air swaps some B787-10s for B777Fs and B787-9s

Taiwanese carrier EVA Air is amending its order for Boeing 787-10s, swapping some of the outstanding aircraft for B777 freighters and B787-9s.

The airline said it had reached agreement with Boeing to exchange seven of the B787-10s yet to be delivered for four B787-9s and three B777Fs.

EVA Air said the swap relates to an original order for 20 aircraft – comprising 18 B787-10s and two B777-300ERs – placed in November 2015.

The carrier adds that the decision reflects “changes of market demands” as well as a “continuous optimisation” of its network and fleet.

It stated that the price of each B777F will not be greater than $382m and that for each B787-9 will not be more than $318m.

EVA Air added that the total transaction will not exceed $7.3bn.

It had previously signalled a potential change to the B787-10 order, in response to the air transport crisis. The carrier has taken delivery of five of the type.
