Dubai Airshow 2023: Royal Jordanian ups 787 orders

Royal Jordanian Airlines has ordered four 787-9s and re-instated a previously cancelled order for another two.

Although “Royal Jordanian lives in a very difficult region” this is not preventing the carrier from “going ahead with our fleet renewal programme,” said its CEO Samer Majali. In addition to the 787-9s from Boeing, the carrier has signed deals with unannounced lessors for an additional three 787-9s.

Two of the leased 787-9s will be delivered in 2025 and the third in 2026, with the new 787-9s delivered from Boeing between 2027 and 2030, said Majali.

He also confirmed that Royal Jordanian is going to work with Boeing Services to refurbish its existing 787-8 fleet to the newer 787-9 standard to ensure its fleet can offer a consistent service standard.
