Boeing and Turkish Airlines  have finalized a firm order for 25 787-9 Dreamliners with options for five more airplanes.

The firm order will allow Turkey’s flag carrier to further meet the growing demand at its home airport in Istanbul.

Turkish Airlines becomes the 71st customer to buy the 787.

The 787 Dreamliner is an all-new, super-efficient family of commercial airplanes. Since 2011, more than 640 Dreamliners have entered service, flying over 226 million people on more than 680 unique routes around the world, saving an estimated 22 billion pounds of fuel.
