Air Canada Boeing 787-10 rendering

In a landmark move for the airline and the Canadian aviation sector, Air Canada has announced an order for the 787-10 from Boeing.

As a result, once delivered, the airline will fly every model of the 787 series as part of its move towards market-leading environmentally friendly widebodies.

These 787-10s, alongside all previously ordered aircraft, are slated to replace its ageing aircraft types and maximise growth.

Air Canada has made investing in the passenger experience a core priority. Our experience shows customers greatly enjoy flying on the Dreamliner, so we are pleased to offer them a larger version of this popular aircraft, which will premiere a new, state-of-the-art interior cabin design. As importantly, the 787 is highly fuel efficient and will generate operational savings as well as support our sustainability goals of reducing emissions.

Michael Rousseau, president and CEO of Air Canada.

A total of 18 Boeing 787-10s have been ordered, with purchase options for a further 12 should they wish to activate them. The 12 units cover the Canadian airline as they assess future fleet replacement and demand levels.

With already 38 Boeing 787s in its fleet, including 30 787-9s and eight of the smaller 787-8s, the acquisition of the 787-10, the largest model in the series, will give Air Canada a much-needed capacity boost. The variant can fly 6,330 nautical miles (11,730km) and carry up to 336 passengers.

The aircraft will be hugely important in growing its operations and relieving pressure on existing widebodies, with additional cover coming in with the arrival of the -10s. The 787-10 opens up new route possibilities while giving Air Canada additional capacity for required services.
