Singapore Airlines Signs Deal for 39 Boeing Aircraft at The White House

Singapore Airlines Signs Deal for 39 Boeing Aircraft at The White House

The deal - for 20 Boeing 777-9s and 19 787-10 "Dreamliners" - would be valued at $13.8 billion at list prices, though big carriers typically negotiate substantial discounts on such orders.

The order is Singapore Airlines' first for Boeing's newest and largest 777 variant, the 777-9 that is expected to begin flying later this decade.

The signing ceremony, witnessed by US President Donald Trump and Prime Minister of Singapore Lee Hsien Loong, included Singapore Airlines' CEO Goh Choon Phong.

Trump and Lee both referred to Boeing as an "airline". McAllister responded "Yes, Mr. President" and Trump replied, "Okay, go ahead", at which point the two executives signed the order agreement. "I haven't flown it for a while".

Meanwhile SIA is already the launch customer for the 787-10, which it is due to place into service in the first half of next year. The value of this sales transaction will sustain thousands of USA suppliers and more than 70,000 direct and indirect U.S.jobs during the delivery period of this contract.

While these games will not receive a complete visual overhaul, they are all now compatible with 1080p screens. As such, Xbox 360 games in the program will be displayed at higher resolutions when played on Xbox One X .

The 777-9s, intended mainly for long-haul routes, are due for delivery from the 2021/22 financial year, while the 787-10s, for medium-range routes, are due from the 2020/21 financial year.

Singapore Airlines' first Boeing 787-10 rolls out of final assembly earlier this month.

Various subsidiaries of the airline, including SilkAir, Scoot and SIA Cargo, also operate a number of Boeing aircraft, 737 MAX 8 and 737-800, 787-8/9 and 747-400 Freighter, respectively.

Singapore Airlines' mainline operations also flies over 50 Airbus A330 family, A350 and A380 aircraft, with 54 of the types still to be delivered.

"These new aircraft will also provide the SIA Group with new growth opportunities, allowing us to expand our network and offer even more travel options for our customers", said Goh.
