The deal is worth $3.4bn at current list prices and the first aircraft is scheduled for a Q2 2017 delivery. El Al said the 787s will replace its existing 747 and 767 fleet over the next five years.

Boeing Commercial Airplanes president and CEO Ray Conner said: “The Dreamliner will be an excellent addition to El Al’s all-Boeing fleet and marks another chapter in a partnership between our two companies that spans over half a century.”
