Boeing and Turkish Airlines have reached a deal for 25 787-9 Dreamliners with an option for up to five more.

The finalized order, first announced as a commitment last September, sees Turkish Airlines become the 71st customer to buy the 787. Together, these customers have combined to order more than 1,300 Dreamliners, making it the fastest-selling twin-aisle airplane in Boeing history.

Turkish Airlines has continued to expand its fleet of Boeing airplanes. Recently, the airline grew its stable of 777 jets with a purchase of three more 777 Freighters. The airline also uses electronic charts and some other services from Boeing Global Services to further optimize its operations and operational systems.
