China Airlines has finalized an
order with Boeing for up to 24 Dreamliners, as the carrier invests in the
fuel-efficient widebody to expand passenger and cargo operations.

The deal includes a firm order for 16 of the
longest range 787-9 with options for eight additional jets.

“We are excited to introduce the 787-9 Dreamliner
into our operations as we continue to upgrade our fleet with more
modern, fuel-efficient airplanes. Adding the state-of-the-art 787
will help us reduce carbon emissions, while also providing our
customers with unmatched levels of comfort,” said China
Airlines Chairman, Hsieh Su-Chien. “Our continuous investment in
fleet modernization is the cornerstone of our sustainability
efforts. The 787’s best-in-class efficiency and low operating
costs will allow us to expand our network for years to come.”

The 787-9 will reduce fuel use
and emissions by up to 25% compared to the airplanes it replaces.
The aircraft also has an airport-noise footprint that is 60%
smaller than the previous generation of planes.

Since entering service in 2011, the 787 family has enabled airlines to open more than 325
new nonstop routes and reduce carbon emissions by 80 billion
pounds.

“The 787’s superior fuel efficiency and range,
combined with China Airlines’ existing fleet of 777-300ERs, will
enable the carrier to grow efficiently and also expand its global
route network,” said Ihssane Mounir, Boeing senior vice president
of Commercial Sales and Marketing. “This is a milestone order in
our continuing partnership with China Airlines, and the
market-leading efficiencies of the 787 will play an important role
in furthering the airline’s sustainability efforts.”

China Airlines now has 22 Boeing jets on order,
including six 777 Freighters.

In addition to Airbus aircraft, the Taipei-based airline also currently operates
10 B777-300ERs (Extended Range).
