Avianca Places Order for Three Boeing 787s
Colombian national carrier Avianca Airlines placed a $620 million order for three Boeing 787 Dreamliners.
The order adds to Avianca’s 2007 order for 12 787s, bringing its total order value to more than $3.1 billion, the company said.
"Adding more 787s to our order aligns well with our expansion and service improvement plans for the airline," said Fabio Villegas, CEO of Avianca Airlines. "The range and efficiency of the airplane make it a great fit into our overall fleet plans and interior of the airplane will bring a unique flying experience to our passengers that only Avianca can provide."
