Breaking Down The Order
As part of a continued commitment to expanding and modernising widebody operations, Royal Jordanian believes now is the right time to order new planes.
Four additional Boeing 787-9s have been ordered, bringing the total 787-9 backlog for the airline to six units.
The Boeing 787 Dreamliner is the backbone of the widebody fleet, and thanks to the newest commitment, it will continue for decades to come.
Adding the 787-9s will complement the existing 787 Dreamliners in the fleet. However, adding the -9 will enable Royal Jordanian to fly more passengers and cargo further than before, thanks to its enhanced capabilities.
