International Airlines Group (IAG) is converting six Boeing 787-10 options held by British Airways into firm orders and at the same time is adding a further six 787-10 options to its long-haul order book.
IAG is also converting one Airbus A350-900 option held by Iberia into a firm order.
The firm aircraft will be delivered in 2025 and 2026 and will be used by British Airways and Iberia to restore capacity in the airlines' long-haul fleets.
Luis Gallego, IAG Chief Executive Officer, said: "These latest generation aircraft will contribute to restoring capacity to pre-pandemic levels. They will be among the most fuel-efficient aircraft in our long-haul fleet and will help towards our commitment to achieve net zero carbon emissions by 2050."
