Norwegian Air to buy 2 more Boeing Dreamliners

Norwegian Air announced Wednesday it has agreed to buy two Boeing 787-9 Dreamliners, expanding its fleet despite some operational troubles with the Dreamliner.

Norwegian has three 787-8 Dreamliner aircraft in its long-haul fleet and five more on order. The company will have 10 long-haul planes counting deliveries planned through mid-2016.

“In order to run a competitive long-haul operation, we are dependent on brand new cost-efficient aircraft. … This is a fantastic airplane with high passenger comfort, long range and low fuel burn,” Norwegian’s CEO Bjorn Kjos said in a news release.
