Boeing Co. (NYSE: BA) has finalized a firm order for 15 777-300 Extended Range (ER) airplanes worth $4.7 billion at list prices with Turkish Airlines.
The companies said the latest order, which is the largest order by value in Turkish Airlines' history, will enable the Turkish flag-carrier to continue to serve new destinations worldwide.
Turkish Airlines operates a fleet that includes nearly 100 Boeing airplanes and serves more than 200 destinations across 90 countries worldwide.
The 777-300ER seats up to 386 passengers in a three-class configuration and has a maximum range of 7,930 nautical miles (14,685 km).
Turkish Airlines' fleet currently includes 12 777-300ERs, the first of which Boeing delivered in October 2010.
"Over the past two years, these airplanes have formed the backbone of Turkish Airlines' long-haul operations," the companies noted.
BA shares ended at $74.64 on Friday.
