Saab and Boeing Sign 787 Dreamliner Agreement

Saab has signed an extension agreement with Boeing for the manufacturing of large cargo doors, bulk cargo doors and access doors for the Boeing 787 Dreamliner.

The framework agreement is an extension of an existing contract signed with Boeing in 2004 for the 787 Dreamliner programme.

“With this contract extension we continue to be a proud partner to Boeing on the successful 787 programme, one of the world's best-selling widebody aircraft. It strengthens our good and long relationship with Boeing and enhances the cooperation we have, both on commercial aerostructures and the T-7A trainer on the defence side,” says Lars Tossman, head of Saab’s business area Aeronautics.

Since the programme started, Saab has delivered in excess of 1,100 shipsets for the Boeing 787 Dreamliner programme.

Saab has a long experience in supplying major aerostructures for military as well as commercial aircraft programmes. Like many other major 787 structures, the doors will be mainly made of composite materials. A range of systems are built into the doors’ composite structures, providing Boeing with lightweight doors that are easy to install.
