Travel News Asia Wednesday, 6 December 2006

International business aviation group, PrivatAir, has confirmed an order for one Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner airplane. PrivatAir, headquartered in Geneva, is the first company of its kind to purchase the 787. The order is valued at US$153 million at today's list prices.

PrivatAir will be the first commercial business aviation specialist to offer the 787 to its customers. The 787 complements PrivatAir's existing Boeing fleet, which includes a newly acquired 767, one 757, three Boeing Business Jets (BBJs) and one BBJ2.

PrivatAir is evaluating the two engine options, the General Electric GEnx and the Rolls-Royce Trent 1000.

"Working with PrivatAir is an excellent way for us to continue and expand our success in the corporate aircraft market," said Marlin Dailey, vice president of Sales for Europe, Russia and Central Asia, Boeing Commercial Airplanes. "PrivatAir's order is another example of the 787's exceptional versatility."

The 787's first flight is scheduled for 2007, with entry into service during 2008.
