Share:

Boeing (NYSE: BA) and TUI Travel PLC ("TUI Travel" or "the Group"), one of the world's leading leisure travel companies, have completed an order for two 787-8 Dreamliners. The deal, worth $424 million at current list prices, extends TUI Travel's 787 commitment to 15 airplanes. The purchase was originally attributed on the Boeing Orders & Deliveries website to an unidentified customer. TUI took delivery of its first 787-8 Dreamliner in May and now has four airplanes in service.

"We have developed our strategy by putting the customer at the center of everything we do," said Peter Long, TUI Travel chief executive. "The 787 Dreamliner is another example where we have led the way by enhancing the customer experience and improving environmental efficiencies, both of which differentiate us from other tour operators. The feedback we receive from those who fly on these aircraft is exceptional and this order allows us to continue to deliver the best possible customer holiday experience - from the point customers start dreaming of their holiday until they get home."
