All Nippon Airways (ANA) has finalised an order with Boeing for 40 widebody aircraft comprising 20 777-9Xs, 14 787-9s, and six 777-300ERs.

The deal, originally announced as a commitment in March, is valued at $13 billion, says the US airframer.

"The aircraft we have selected will enable us to modernize and expand our fleet further as we seek to become one of the world's leading airline groups," said Shinichiro Ito, president and CEO, ANA Holdings. "These new aircraft will give us maximum flexibility and improved fuel efficiency, and will allow us to meet the growth in demand, both internationally and in our domestic Japanese market.”

Boeing adds that the 777X has 300 orders and commitments from six customers globally.

"This order from ANA demonstrates the strength of our 50-year partnership and we are proud to make history with ANA once again," said Boeing Commercial Airplanes president and chief executive Ray Conner.

"We are honoured that ANA has decided to continue operating an all-Boeing widebody fleet that consists of 767s, 787s, 777s and now the new 777X family of airplanes."
