Air Canada has announced an order for eighteen Boeing 787-10s plus twelve options as part of its fleet renewal plans. The options include the flexibility to meet future customer demand, so they could be swapped for different Dreamliner models. The order means another widebody success for Boeing, which has won 161 gross orders for the 787 until September 1. Air Canada 787-10 order grows Boeing’s Dreamliner backlog.

Air Canada hopes to take delivery of the Dreamliners between Q4 2025 and Q1 2027. The aircraft will replace older widebody aircraft in the fleet. The carrier has eight 767-300s that are on average almost 23 years old, plus six 777-200s of almost sixteen years old. There are also eighteen Airbus A330-300s in service over seventeen years old.
