(Reuters) - Air New Zealand Ltd (AIR.NZ) said on Tuesday it had signed contracts to buy eight Boeing (BA.N) 787-10 Dreamliner airplanes.
The aircraft will be powered by GE Aviation’s (GE.N) GEnx-1B engines, New Zealand’s flag carrier said.
The deal follows the airline’s initial announcement in May, where it said it would explore entering into contracts with both Boeing and GE Aviation.
