The Taiwanese airline no longer needs aircraft of this size. Therefore, Eva Air is converting an order for seven Boeing 787-10 to other types.
Five years ago, Eva Air signed a major contract with Boeing. The airline ordered two 777-300 ER and 18 of the largest Dreamliner variant, the 787-10. The deal was worth up to 7.3 billion dollars.
But like many of its competitors, fleet planning suddenly became obsolete due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. And so Eva Air began to negotiate with Boeing. Now, the Taiwanese airline and the US American aircraft manufacturer could reach an agreement.
No more Boeing 787-10
The seven Boeing 787-10s that had not yet been delivered will no longer be taken up by Eva Air, it was announced on Monday (August 31). Eva Air will instead receive three Boeing 777 F freighters and four smaller 787-9 Dreamliner.
