Boeing finalises 787 order with Vietnam Airlines

The Chicago-based Boeing Company announced Thursday that Vietnam Airlines and Vietnam Aircraft Leasing Co. (VALC) have finalised an order for a total of 12 Boeing 787-8s with a list value of approximately 2 billion U.S. dollars.

Vietnam Airlines will take four of the new airplanes and VALC will purchase the remaining eight Dreamliners, leasing them to Vietnam Airlines.

The combined Vietnam order pushes Boeing 787 order totals to 802. The order is included in 2007 totals and will be included in this week's Boeing Orders and Deliveries Web site update.

This is the second order for the 787 Dreamliner by the Vietnam Airlines and VALC, following a previous order for four airplanes in 2005. The Vietnam Airlines was the 7th carrier in the world to select the 787.
