Taiwanese carrier China Airlines and Boeing singed an agreement at the Paris Air Show for eight additional Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner, taking the carrier’s total to 24 Dreamliners. The order, which was previously attributed to an undisclosed customer, also includes the conversion of six 787-9 orders into the larger 787-10 variant.

China Airlines originally ordered 16 Dreamliner back in 2022 to replace its aging Airbus A330 fleet.
