Russia’s Transaero has canceled its order for four Boeing 787-8s. The deal, which was finalized in April 2012, was valued at $744 million at list prices. First delivery was expected in 2014.
The Moscow-based carrier plans to focus on its order for four 747-8I aircraft. The carrier also has four Airbus A380s on order. CEO Olga Pleshakova said the latter two aircraft types would replace older 747s and expand the carrier’s fleet from 2015.
In July, Transaero signed a letter of intent with Airbus for 12 A330neos and eight A330ceos at the Farnborough Airshow.
Transaero’s current fleet includes 102 aircraft, comprising 20 Boeing 747s, 14 777s, 18 767s, 45 737s, three Tupolev Tu-214s and two Tu-204-100Cs.
