Air Canada to Acquire 18 Boeing 787-10 Dreamliner Jets

Air Canada, the country's largest airline, has recently announced its decision to purchase 18 Boeing 787-10 Dreamliner jets. This move is part of the airline's ongoing fleet renewal program and its drive to improve fuel efficiency.


Details of the Purchase

The firm order for 18 aircraft also includes options for an additional 12 Boeing 787-10 aircraft. The first delivery of these new aircraft is scheduled for late 2025, with the last aircraft expected to be delivered in Q1 2027. These new jets will replace older, less efficient wide-body aircraft currently in the Air Canada fleet. The agreement provides flexibility for growth to meet future customer demand.


Why the Boeing 787-10 Dreamliner?

The Boeing 787-10 is the largest model of the Dreamliner family and can carry more than 330 customers depending on the seat configuration. It also offers enhanced cabin pressurization and humidity controls, and the largest dimmable windows of any commercial aircraft. Moreover, the Dreamliner is highly fuel efficient. According to Boeing, the 787-10 has up to 25% lower fuel emissions per seat than the aircraft it replaces. This aligns with Air Canada's sustainability goals of reducing emissions.

A New Interior Cabin Design

Air Canada has made investing in the passenger experience a core priority. The new Dreamliners will feature a new, state-of-the-art interior cabin design.

Other Fleet Renewal Plans

In addition to the Boeing 787-10s, Air Canada continues to take delivery of new Airbus A220 aircraft. The airline also plans to acquire 28 extra-long range (XLR) versions of the Airbus A321neo aircraft, beginning in 2025. As previously announced, Air Canada has finalized a purchase agreement for 30 ES-30 electric-hybrid aircraft under development by Heart Aerospace. These are expected to enter service in 2028.


This latest move by Air Canada demonstrates its commitment to enhancing passenger experience and reducing environmental impact. With these new additions, Air Canada will soon operate one of the most modern, efficient widebody fleets in the world.
