Emirates defers A350/B787 order decision

Posted 11 September 2017 · Add Comment

Emirates president Tim Clark has said the airline has deferred plans to place a new widebody order this year, reports ch-aviation.

This week Clark said that a much-anticipated order for either the A350 or B787 was off the table for now.

Earlier this year, the Chairman and Chief Executive of Emirates Airline and Group, Shaikh Ahmad Bin Saeed Al Maktoum, hinted that a decision could be announced during the upcoming Dubai 2017 Airshow. Emirates had previously committed to an order for fifty A350-900s and twenty A350-1000s from Airbus only to terminate the contract in June 2014 citing the need to re-evaluate its fleet requirements.
