JERUSALEM, June 21 (Reuters) - El Al Israel Airlines is buying three more Boeing 787 Dreamliners in a deal worth more than $729 million, firming up additional commitments made in 2015, the companies said on Wednesday.
The order includes two 787-8s and one 787-9. Israel’s flag carrier now has six unfilled orders for 787s, with lease agreements in place for a further seven Dreamliners.
El Al expects the first of an eventual 16 Dreamliners to arrive in August. (Reporting by Ari Rabinovitch)
