International Airlines Group (IAG) has reached agreement with Boeing to order 25 737-8200 and 25 737-10 aircraft, plus 100 options.

 

The aircraft will be delivered between 2023 and 2027 and can be used by any airline in the Group for fleet replacement.

 

Luis Gallego, IAG´s chief executive, said: "The addition of new Boeing 737s is an important part of IAG´s shorthaul fleet renewal. These latest generation aircraft are more fuel efficient than those they will replace and in line with our commitment to achieving net zero carbon emissions by 2050."

The fleet order is subject to approval by IAG shareholders.

The parent company of British Airways, Aer Lingus, Iberia and Vueling says that the jets “can be used by any airline in the group for fleet replacement”.

 

Luis Gallego, IAG´s chief executive, said:

“The addition of new Boeing 737s is an important part of IAG´s shorthaul fleet renewal. These latest generation aircraft are more fuel efficient than those they will replace and in line with our commitment to achieving net zero carbon emissions by 2050.”

 

Stan Deal, president and CEO of Boeing Commercial Airplanes, added:

“With the selection of the 737-8-200 and larger 737-10, IAG has invested in a sustainable and profitable future, as both variants will significantly lower operating costs and CO2 emissions.

“Today’s agreement for up to 150 airplanes, including 100 options, is a welcome addition of the 737 to IAG´s short-haul fleets and reflects our commitment to support the Group’s continued network recovery and future growth with Boeing’s unrivalled family of airplanes.”

IAG single-aisle modernisation continues as more A320neo options firmed up
By David Kaminski-Morrow

30 June 2022

British Airways and Iberia parent IAG is converting options for another 14 Airbus A320neo-family twinjets into firm orders.

The options were originally disclosed as part of an agreement for up to 220 Airbus single-aisle jets in 2013.

IAG says the latest firming of options covers three A321neos and 11 A320neos.

The company had already placed separate orders for eight single-aisle aircraft – a pair of A321neos and six A320neos – in May, through a previous exercising of options.

IAG says the aircraft will be delivered over the course of 2024-25.

They will replace older A320 airframes in the short-haul fleet, although IAG has not specified which of its airlines will receive the jets.

“These modern, more fuel-efficient aircraft will bring both cost efficiencies and environmental benefits to IAG airlines,” it states.

IAG’s modernisation of its single-aisle operation led the company to firm an agreement for up to 150 Boeing 737 Max jets earlier this year.

This agreement includes 50 firm orders for 737 Max 10s and Max 8-200s.
