The order should see the aircraft delivered in 2018 and 2019.

Singapore, 14 November 2017 - Emirates, announced at the weekend it has made a USD15.1 billion (AED 55.4 billion) commitment for 40 Boeing 787-10 Dreamliners. It also includes two freighters the airline announced as a commitment in June that finalized into a firm order and posted on Boeing's Orders & Deliveries website this month. The order has a theoretical value of more than $1.3bn at list prices.

The deal has been blocked by demands from Emirates - the biggest customer for the twin-deck jet, with 100 of them in service and a further 42 on order - that the pan-European plane-maker continues making the A380 for at least another decade.

The order takes 777 net orders this year to 57, including 37 for the current-generation 777. Ethiopian Cargo opened a state-of-the-art cargo terminal in June 2017 that gives the carrier an annual capacity of one million tons.

The previous day, Boeing said that it had finalised an order for 20 additional 737 MAX 8s from ALAFCO Aviation Lease and Finance Company, doubling the lessor's order book for the MAX airplane.
