United Airlines has recently announced that it has placed an order for an additional 110 aircrafts from both Airbus and Boeing. This decision comes as international travel demand continues to surge.
The carrier has secured a deal for 50 Boeing 787-9s, which are expected to be delivered between 2028 and 2031. In addition, United Airlines has also ordered 60 Airbus A321neos, with deliveries scheduled between 2028 and 2030.
To further strengthen its fleet, the company has also signed options for up to 50 more Boeing 787s and purchase rights for an additional 40 Airbus A321neo aircrafts by the end of the decade.
United Airlines' Chief Executive, Scott Kirby, expressed his confidence in the airline's strategy. He stated, "I'm convinced our strategy is the right one as we continue to add new, larger aircraft to take full advantage of our growing flying opportunities both internationally and domestically."
This recent order reflects United's plans to take delivery of approximately 800 new narrowbody and widebody aircrafts between 2023 and 2032. Such a significant expansion is a testament to the airline's optimistic outlook on future growth.
In July, United Airlines reported a profit that more than tripled during the second quarter and raised its outlook for the year. This positive financial performance further supports the company's decision to enhance its fleet capacity.
With these additional aircrafts, United Airlines aims to better meet the increasing travel demands, while also ensuring a comfortable and efficient flying experience for its passengers.
