Air Canada Eyes Boeing 787 Order

On the back of a landmark announcement that will see Air Canada and flydubai partner, Per Bloomberg, the company is now eyeing a new commitment with Boeing for aircraft.

A deal will likely consist of up to 20 Boeing 787 Dreamliners, following the company’s renewed goal to expand its long-haul fleet.

Per Cirium fleet data, the airline operates 38 Boeing 787s. This is spread between 30 -9s and 8 of the smallest -8s. Their oldest 787 is a -9 at nine years. However, the average age sits at a modest seven years.

Air Canada deploys its 787 to destinations across North America and internationally, and an additional commitment would boost its capacity significantly.

Adding a reported 15-20 787s would boost their long-haul offering, which already consists of the 777 family. However, these aircraft are now substantially getting on in age, with its 777-200LRs averaging almost 16 years. Meanwhile, its 777-300ERs range from 7 years to 15.
