Qantas set to strengthen fleet with Boeing 787 Dreamliner order 

Boeing 787-10 Dreamliner.

It has been reported that Australian flag carrier, Qantas, is on the cusp of purchasing a number of Boeing 787 Dreamline aircraft.  

According to Reuters, which has been advised by aviation sources, the order will be for the Boeing 787-10 Dreamliner model.  

The Australian airline already operates 14 Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft. The 787-10 is a stretched version of the 787-9, so will be capable of flying with more passengers but has a lower flight range.  

The industry source told Reuters that the deal between Boeing and Qantas is still not over the line and no decision is yet final. 

On July 21, 2023, Qantas received its final 787-9 Dreamliner of 14 ordered, naming the aircraft Snowy River.  

According to, Qantas is waiting for 29 Airbus A220-300s to be delivered, plus 25 A321XLRs and 12 A350-1000 aircraft.  

The new Airbus jets will be the first time that Qantas has ever operated these models. 

The airline increased its order for the A220-300 in June 2023 through an agreement with Airbus to purchase a further nine aircraft. 

Qantas anticipates that Airbus will deliver all 29 A220s by the end of FY2027, which ends in June 2027.
